Costco employees share 21 things they'd love to tell shoppers, but can't
• Costco membership goes to some peoples' heads, according to workers.
• Business Insider reached out to Costco employees to find out what they wish they could tell shoppers - but can't.
• "Control your kids," "hang up your phone," and "help unload the cart" were common requests.
But, according to dozens of Costco workers who spoke with Business Insider, being a member doesn't entitle you to do whatever you want.
Business Insider spoke to more than two dozen Costco employees about the things they want to tell members, but can't. Some of their responses focused on obviously problematic behaviors, like members being mean and inconsiderate. But some of the tips were more instructive.
Here's what they had to say:
Have your membership card ready at the door
Pick up after yourselves
Put back items you've picked up
Be smart with your money
Drop your sense of entitlement
No one cares if you threaten to take your business elsewhere
The customer's not always right
Don't blame employees for things they can't change
If you're not nice, don't expect stellar service
Don't be selfish
Think about your fellow members, too
Check your coupons before you shop
Educate yourself about the store rules before swinging by
Family cards don't exist at Costco
Control your kids
Don't endanger your children
Put your phone down while you shop
Don't leave all the heavy lifting to employees
Lend a helping hand
And a handful of employees wish they could just lay into some members
