I went to Costco on Saturday with a friend and my small service dog. The lady at the front tried to interrogate me about the nature of my disability. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) allows clerks to ask if my dog is a service dog and required because of a disability, and what she is trained to do to mitigate it. My dog had a service dog vest on, and I have a badge indicating she is a service dog.

When I attempted to shop, I was accosted by a manager who followed me around and embarrassed me by asking about my disability. This is clearly a violation of the ADA, and I am calling for a boycott of Costco. No discounts are worth this sort of treatment.
