That Costco employee won't stop FORCING me into upgrading into the Executive membership!!?

OH MY GOD! I already wrote on my card" NO EXECUTIVE MEMEMSHIP PLEASE!" and some cashiers still doesn't get the hint and dare to bug me about the freaking memebership. And i am really tired of explaining my situation in front of everyone waiting in the line that i don't want to because once i sign up for the Executive membership then yall want me to sign up for the credit card, and i have a bad credit because was the cosigner of my bother's car loan and he didn't pay the loan so now my credit is BAD. I don't wanna say all this in front of strangers. Like omg what should i do?? I'm asian can i just pretend i don't speak english? will that be too rude? or should i just pretend i am deaf? can someone please teach me a POLITE but FIRM way of of saying no? Better yet a polite way of saying " B**ch, listen, if u don't shut the F up now i will beat u up cuz i'm about to get violent!"

Every time it's like i keep saying " it's not for me, i'll pass, but thank you." then they will drag me into a counter to show me how much i spend. blah blah blah.

    Be assertive!  Just say, "No, thank you," and ask that they simply ring up your purchases as you're in a hurry.  Don't get 'dragged' anywhere.  Just don't go with them.

    If the cashier asks you to upgrade your membership, just say "no" or "not interested" and let it go at that. Many times, cashiers are offered a bonus for everyone new that they can sign up; so (from the cashier's point of view), it doesn't hurt to ask.

    "Not today, I'm in a hurry."  Anything else they say, same answer.

    Most places, the cashiers are required to ask that question, and do the whole follow-up if you don't cut them off.  They get in trouble if they don't.  If it helps, s/he's probably even more sick of asking people than you are of being asked.

    Instead of 'in a hurry,' you can try "I've heard the whole pitch, please skip it."  I've had some success with that.

    If a simple, "no thank you", doesn't work, get over it.
