SEATTLE – When Nancy Pitts opened up her 5-pound container of grapes last night and started to wash them, she found a nasty surprise.

"I got to the bottom of it and all of a sudden… a spider came out," she said.

And it was not your ordinary house spider.

"When I went online, it told me what it was – a black widow spider in my house," she said. http://www.king5.com/topstories/stories/NW_111808WAB_costco_grapes_KC.1c81afeab.html

This why I don't shop at Costco.

Actually, I don't shop at Costco because of their appalling customer service and their slavish devotion to Democrat politicians and causes. However, the spider is just another good reason not to shop there. :D

I prefer Sam's Club myself even though Costco's is closer.
