I just must not be saying right.
I always say “paper bags, as few as possible please”. Obviously this means I want the fewest possible number of bags. Even if I can only get plastic bags, I want AS FEW AS POSSIBLE.
Well, baggers were simply not cooperating. So I added “fill 'em up to the top”. I foolishly thought that they would do that. But noooooooooo.
Do baggers get a bonus if they use more bags than anyone else?? Christ, it’s getting to the point where each individual item gets it’s own bag.
A few weeks ago, when they guy started putting my stuff in plastic bags, I told the bagger “paper please, as few as possible!”
What did he do? He put the plastic bags INTO THE PAPER BAGS!!
It’s a fuckin’ conspiracy, I tells ya!!!
Yesterday, I went to Target. I bought the 3rd Season of Friends on DVD and 2 greeting cards. One bag, right? NO. The woman tried to put the cards into a second, smaller bag. When I asked her, politely (I’m always polite), to put them into the bag with the DVD, without the second smaller bag, she reacted as if I’d slapped her!
Look, if I can carry all the items I want to purchase in the crook of my left arm, then all the items I want to purchase can fit in the same goddammed bag. The 6-pack of 24oz Pepsi bottles do not need a bag. They have their own handy-dandy handle for easy carrying! And if they put the 6-pack in a bag, that’s the ONLY item they’ll put in it!
Look, I jsut don’t want all the golldang bags!!
I told one kid to fill the bags up because I wanted as few bags as possible. Ya know what he did? He double bagged eveything!!!
