"If I didn't see it, I wouldn't believe that someone had so little morel [sic] values or lack of conscience".
"I can't make this stuff up", Scott Bentley wrote.
According to the article, a shopper behind the woman posted the story on Facebook.

The post said the woman was questioned about the purchase and Costco employees made sure to verify the purchase on her account. But I don't think it fazed her because she has no conscience.
The man wrote that the woman didn't seem to mind that he took her picture. "People like this are miserable".
Costco has a liberal return policy and allows just about anything to be returned at any time, though electronics and appliances have a 90-day limit.
