Video shows Costco worker calmly handle customer berating him over mask policy
A Costco worker was being lauded online for his handling of an encounter with a customer who berated him and refused to wear a mask.

A Costco employee is being lauded online for his handling of an encounter with a customer who recorded himself berating the worker and refusing to wear a mask.

A video of the incident posted to Twitter on Monday highlights a reality for many retail workers who are having to enforce stores' rules and public health guidelines on masks. The original video was posted on Instagram before it was deleted.

Costco requires every employee and customer in its stores to wear masks that cover the mouth and the nose to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

In the 37-second video, which has more than 6.8 million views, a customer who appears to be in a checkout line can be heard telling a Costco employee whose name tag reads "Tison": "I'll just put you on my 3,000-follower Instagram feed, mostly locals."

The employee waves to the camera and says: "Hi everyone. I work for Costco and I'm asking this member to put on a mask because that is our company policy.

"So either wear the mask," the employee starts to say before the customer briefly turns the camera on himself and says: "And I'm not doing it. Because I woke up in a free country."

The customer resumes recording the employee, who then takes the man's shopping cart and says, "Have a great day," as he wheels it away.

The customer asks the employee whether he is going to take his cart full of toilet paper, detergent and other items away.

"Sir, have a great day. You are no longer welcome here in our warehouse," the worker responds. "You need to leave. Thank you very much."

The customer can be heard telling a woman beside him wearing a mask that he will give her his Costco membership card.

"He's going to take the cart away," the customer says. "Because he's a p---- little b----."

"There he is walking away with all my stuff," the customer continues. "There he goes. Because I'm not a f------ sheep."

A spokeswoman for Costco declined to comment Wednesday. The employee did not immediately return a request for an interview.

The worker was praised by many on Twitter, including actress Busy Philipps, who said he was a "hero." Some Twitter users suggested that Costco give Tison a raise.

Tison replied from his Twitter account, saying, "People of Twitter thank you for all of the support."

He added: "I was just trying to protect our employees and our members."

Costco's president and CEO, Craig Jelinek, explains the warehouse chain's mask policy in a letter addressed to members posted on the company's website. The letter cites the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as advising that face coverings can help slow the spread of the virus, including by those who are not aware they are infected.

"This is not simply a matter of personal choice; a face covering protects not just the wearer, but others too," the letter states. "In short, we believe this is the right thing to do under the current circumstances.

"Although some may disagree with this policy or question its effectiveness, we're choosing to err on the side of safety in our shopping environments," Jelinek wrote.

Why is there a part of society that is so stupid?  Wearing a mask isn't going to kill you.  Retailers don't want you to wear it because you look like an idiot with it on, (your own actions do that) but they want you to wear it to protect YOURSELF, their employees and other customers.

"There he goes. Because I'm not a f------ sheep."

No.  You're not a sheep.  You're a f$cking JACKASS.  Put the mask on, get your shit and get out.

I'm not asking patients to wear masks, because my staff and I are making sure that we have on our PPE and that patients aren't encountering each other in our office.  But we are asking screening questions regarding coronavirus prior to appointments, and taking patients' temperatures before allowing them in the building.  Several people have already complained about the screening questions.  Because apparently, a healthcare provider asking questions about your health to keep everyone safe is just too much to be borne.

Thank you, Paula.  I want to be open for business.  I also want everyone to be as safe as possible - me, my employees, my patients, and all of our families.  That's why my staff and I are boiling in our enhanced PPE, we're going through disinfectant wipes faster than we can unpack them from the box, and we're playing traffic cop in the hallways to keep patients, masked or not, away from each other.  The least they can do is not get pissed when we ask if they have a fever.

One of my patients today works in the wound care clinic of our local hospital.  She said people there give pushback over the same questions, and have to be told to put on a mask inside the hospital, or leave.  The wound care clinic manages most local doctors' Coumadin patients, so many of these patients are prone to blood clots.  One of the ways coronavirus kills is by causing blood clots.  The folks complaining are mostly already at increased risk.

To every one of those who complain about wearing a mask should have to spend the day in the gear you and every other dentist/staff has to wear all day.  They might then appreciate what ya'll have to go through just to protect them.

"And I'm not doing it. Because I woke up in a free country."  

Indicating the second reason his "free country" has the biggest infection and death numbers in the world.  If, by failing to wear a mask he has spread the virus, he may well be a murderer.

We have over a third of the cases and we are less than 5 percent of the total world population, so fuck this guys attitude.  The clerk was right to do what he did but should have gone one step further by having him legally trespassed from all of their stores.  He  can always get another card and just go to another one.

My local Costco gives masks to all members who enter the store if they don't bring their own. If one doesn't wear it they are not allowed in the store and hopefully Costco will terminate that persons membership.

[removed]

How people deal with the global numbers are like a window    [removed]    The idea that these reported numbers accurately capture the number of  infections is so patently ridiculous.  It's amusing to see them cited like gospel.  Besides the actual spread of the infection and number of infected who never seek treatment, a country's numbers will depend on things like it's honesty, it's ability to actually gather reliable data and the amount of testing. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that,yet people still claim the USA (one of those countries making an honest attempt to report it's infections, unlike China, Iran, Russia, has X percentage of cases and is the "worst." 

That doesn't even address     [removed]    who ping pong between raw numbers and per capita data (sometimes in the same post) to find whatever number makes America look the worst.

I guess you don't understand how this works. Johns Hopkins has no independently verified  information. It just consolidates the claims of each country and reports them. 

So, in your world, China's count is accurate. apparently, there were only 500 odd cases in the whole country between November and January 22. Crazy how this infectious diseases barely infecred anyone even when the government wasn denying it's existence and taking no preventive measures. You might be the only person not affiliated with the Chinese government to claim that.   I've also seen Twitter claim half the tweets on covid are made by Russian or Chinese bots sowing disinformation. 

If the CCP announces the Holocaust never happened tomorrow, I assume you are on board with that?

To you, XD, and Sean,

Let's look at it this way.  I know for a fact that the numbers where I live are fairly accurate, verified by two Front Line doctors, one of whom has been a close friend since I moved here.  Chongqing is a city-state with a 22 million population.  There were 579 cases of infection, 6 of whom died, and the rest recovered. Of course there could be some more that were never recognized or reported. There have been no new cases (unless a newcomer or two to the area brought their infection) for more than two months.  Everything is back to normal including the schools opening, and many people are no longer wearing masks.  Now, save for Hebei and its capital city Wuhan, I feel correct in extrapolating for the rest of China, so I do not disbelieve the numbers.  But of course, since Trump's game plan for re-election is to follow the O'Donnell Republican bible his minions will kow-tow to whatever he says.  If the numbers are as the Trump-sheep believe, since I have a good view of a couple of streets I would have seen bodies lying in the streets. I would have known that among my wife's extended family (this is her home town) and our friends' extended families and what all of them knew, at least ONE person had to have been infected, BUT NOBODY WAS. There is a big difference in the culture here compared to the USA.  The people of the USA are inundated with pride in their individual rights, their freedoms, but here the greater good, the collective life and health, i.e. that of others is more important.  In the USA, the economy and individual rights outrank the life and health of the people.  So yes, I believe what I see, and what I know from FIRST HAND knowledge.  What YOU believe is obvious to me, in fact completely understandable because you are Americans, and Trump supporters. 

Keep in mind that I never denied the wrongdoings of the CCP, and said so many times here.  I'm doing the same as you, speaking our minds.

So you believe that only 523 cases existed in China before January 23 when Wuhan was put under lockdown?  Nothing else really needs to be said.  It's your credibility.

As I said, Sean, MORE than once, when I extrapolate the numbers that I know are fairly correct where I am, then the numbers for all of China seem quite reasonable.  Nobody's numbers are perfect - there still have to be a lot of unreported infections and deaths all over the world, so we can only go with relying on what appears to be reasonable.  So you can stop your fucking attack now.

What is it that people can't distinguish between governmental "rules" and private property desires?

I wear a mask as requested by stores, and it comes off immediately when I exit.   Hell, even one of the local Sheriff's deputies that was in a store while I was there did the same thing when we both walked out.

The no shoes, no shirt, no service reminded me of something that happened years ago.  A friend of mine went into a place with that sign.  He had on a shirt and shoes, but no pants.  After the employee and most of the customers stopped cracking up, they still would not serve him.  Another funny from my past was when I was in college.  My local western bar had a sign...NO ONE ON A HORSE WILL BE SERVED.  I rode my horse in and they indeed would not serve me, but they served my horse (a beer and pretzels).

What if you live in a rural area and there is no delivery service? Don't think that's true? When I was a kid growing up in PA it was 10 miles to the nearest grocery store. Do you think the people that are living there now are getting grocery deliveries from 10 miles away? I suppose they could order Amazon but there's no internet service out that way, either

Sometimes the elderly have no one around. You know that as well as I do, that's why there's such things as Meals on Wheels. You can't fault a family for not being there when jobs take them across the country.

Look, we can play in "maybes" and "what ifs" all day. The point is wearing a mask is a SELFLESS act it's not meant to impinge on your rights. But if that's the way you see it, then please don't wear a mask but don't get pissy when someone insists you wear one in a public place.

Bring a health threat to others is not a right either. Neither is shopping in a store. If you don't want to follow store rules protecting the public health by wearing a mask, then don't shop in the store. But not wearing a mask in a public place is both irresponsible and inconsiderate!

The difference is private business rights.    If you want to come into my business I can require that you wear a mask.     If you don’t, you can’t come in.    I have zero problem with that in these extenuating circumstances.

That said I’m sure one can find a business like mine that doesn’t require mask.    Take it there if you have a problem with my rules.

We went through a similar thing with carry laws.    While on my dime and in my property we don’t allow anyone to carry.    It’s a potential liability issue that our insurance doesn’t cover.    It’s that simple really.

Some fellow shooters who worked for us screamed bloody murder.    I got it but it changed nothing for us from business liability standpoint..

Actually your ignorance of the law reminds me of numerous times over the years (on many websites I've been on...even long before NV) where inevitably someone like you says that in the U.S. we have unlimited "freedom of speech"-- therefore the moderators on the site have no right to censor what they say...that they have the right to say anything they want regardless of the rules of the site (the "COH'. the "COC", etc).

Of course they are wrong. Site owners do have the right to limit what can be said on their site. Why?

For the same reason that owners of private business can make certain rules about how people must act (or dress, etc) in their establishments.

We (North Carolina) are easing restrictions as of 5:00 pm today. This guy (me) isn't going to any restaurant even at 50% and 8' between tables distancing. I order in or check the pantry, frig, and freezer first as we are pretty well stocked.........always are. I am going three places only. Work, convenience store, and home. Wife does the grocery shopping observing all precautionary recommendations and I have no need since she is finishing out the school year at home.

On another note, we do host Driveway Drinking gatherings in our driveway as well as a couple other neighbors. Even have duct tape stuck together at 6' spacing intervals.

Arkansas has allowed restaurants to open back up but only at 33% capacity and 6 feet apart. I'd rather get take out or cook. I did get my hair done last night and I wore a mask the whole time. The mask got ruined from the color and little hairs got stuck inside the mask.

The guy is an absolute jerk and should have been thrown out of the store.  If you are going inside anywhere but home, you should wear a mask. If you are walking your dog or anywhere there is hardly any people outside you can choose if you want to.  If you are outside and there are lots of people around you should wear one.  I also think you should always stay at least 6 ft or more away from others.  I wear one according to what I just said.  I feel like it’s double the protection when we all wear them.

The problem I was having was when I would use my scooter to occasionally utilize the Grab And Go distribution site.  It is impossible to put on a mask after you put on a helmet.  If I put it on first and then the helmet, it would dislodge it.  Finally I wrapped the loops around the handles of my sun glasses and that did the trick.  I would remove the mask after leaving because wearing a mask caused my sun glasses to fog up.
