I have yet to remember to bring shopping bags in with me when I go grocery shopping. Not once.
Oh I have them in my truck. And I go to a grocery store at least once a week. So I have had MANY chances to remember since the plastic bag ban – a ban I am in favor of, for what it’s worth.
Usual stores I shop at (for no particular reason):
- Save Mart on Herndon & Milburn.
- Save Mart on Bullard & West.
- Save Mart on Ashlan & West.
- Whole Foods.
- The Market.
Anyway, the other day I actually remembered while I was turning to park. “Bring in your bags” my brain said. So here it is. I have finally remembered. It took three months but I have done it.
The 20 or so seconds between remembering and shutting off my vehicle was enough time for me to forget AGAIN.
One day. One day I will remember. Until then I get to act like a rich badass and buy all the paper bags!
Save Mart Checker: “How many bags should I charge you for sir?”
Me: “Four! No, wait, FIVE! That’s right, I’m just too damn important to bring in my own bags.”
