At the week's end ... I'm letting my inner curmudgeon out

You know how you go to the grocery store with those Earth saving reusable totes that are all the rage?

And you know how good it makes you feel?

Aside from the fact that you've forgotten (YET AGAIN) to bring the sturdy, somewhat stylish totes from the car ... from the place were you stored them in the house the when you unpacked them the last trip ... into the store, and you'll being buying another set of the ugly store-brand kind just so you won't have to bring ALL. THOSE. EVIL. PLASTIC. BAGS. HOME. AGAIN. Or worse, you'll leave the cart and schelp BACK out to the car with a screaming baby and a whiny preschooler ...

Uhm ... Where was I?

Oh, off, damn tangent. What was I saying?

Ah, yes. ... You feel good about this. This is good. This is right.

AND ... It's even saving you a few cents, because the cashiers often take off a nickel or a dime here and there for each bag you haul in to carry off your items.

So WHY for the love of Petey, when they would put Brillo pads and bananas in their own separate bags if they were flimsy plastic ones, do these baggers insist on packing the bags in QUARK so you need a gantry crane to get them from the shopping cart to the trunk of your car?

Is there an Olympic supermarket bagging sport I missed?
