    Their annual fee is the highest of the three major Wholesale Warehouse Club.
    They sell caskets. You heard me, caskets! Are they the crypt keeper, too?
    You need a membership card to shop there like it's some kind of secret society.
    Butchers cutting meat are in plain view of vegetarians, which is totally not cool.
    Who needs ten gallons of freaking mayonnaise, anyway?
    You spend thousands of dollars for a flat screen tv when they are handing out free sausage on a stick ten feet away.
    Your receipt must be checked by some old dude before you can leave the store.
    They do not provide grocery bags.
    They are located throughout the US, Puerto Rico, Canada, U.K., Japan, Mexico, Taiwan and South Korea.
    Unlike Wal-Mart, they have great employee benefits and really take care of their people.
    You know you love their awesome discount prices and buying in bulk!
    You can buy a digital camera, a huge bag of Doritos and elegant jewelry all in the same place!
    They have a lenient return policy, so if you are not happy with your ten gallons of freaking mayonnaise, you can return it without any problems.
    They offer a lot of cash back and rebate incentives, so it pays to shop there.
