RAVE To my honest friend who discovered after a recent trip to Costco that she hadn’t been charged for an item in the lower basket and contacted Costco to give them the $17.49 she should have paid. We should all be this honest. RANT To my neighbors and neighborhood landlords with “homeowner projects” that remain in…
