I was idly reading an article, contemplating the latest price for gas and wondering what new highs and lows were in the local news today.
One of today’s topics I believe was something to do with grocery stores and bagging your own groceries. ~ There was some mention about cashiers bagging or not, or at least something along that line of ~ Can you remember when?
Along a related line was the latest on environment green. No more plastic bags ~ back to paper bags again? But then what about cutting down the trees to make the bags? I tell you it’s a no win situation.
So can you just imagine some person having to bag their own groceries, standing in the line up and hating every minute of it. What was worse, ~ even having to buy the bags!
There they are dragging their butt and grumbling all the time while they bag. I guess one can’t blame them when you see the prices in the grocery stores these days.
This for some reason prompted me to come out with the remark:
‘Bag your own grocery shopping bag rage!’
I mean like. ~ Just think about it.
We have road rage and someone stole the parking space rage, or someone jumped the lineup rage etc, etc.
“Jeeze the stores these days want you to do their work for them! While they stand watching, with their blah, blah, blah.”
If you’ve ever grocery shopped, then you have heard it all before I’m sure.
Meanwhile you get someone else who is waiting in line, getting a little bit impatient, stomping around whilst waiting their turn to bag.
I can see it all now, ~ “Man gets arresting for whacking another customer with a wet lettuce while bagging same!” ~
The mind could work wonders with that one.
I must keep that possibility in mind and shop where they bag the groceries for you!
