Did I Really Need A Bag?
Last night I got home and we realized we were out of dog food, so I ran to the store to grab a can. It's the only thing I purchased.
As I'm checking out I tell the lady politely that I don't need a bag, but she insists. Why? I clearly didn't want the bag and didn't need the bag for 1 can of dog food. So now I'm left to throw the bag away when I get home. No it's not a big job, but why? It's not going to advertise for the store because I'll be home in 3 minutes and no one will see it except me. I don't need it to carry the can of dog food home, it's just as easy to grab the can and go. Plus now it ends up in a landfill. It also seems that when I do go the grocery store, sometimes I get almost as many bags as items. I can put 8 things in one of those little baskets and still get 5 or 6 bags.
Look, I understand that there are some people that want all these bags, but what about those of us that don't? Can we cut back a little bit? Especially when we ask?
