Reusable grocery bags; I'm calling this a "fad" on the way out.
This weekend I was shopping at Walmart. In the check out line in front of me was a female of ample proportions. When the poor checkout girl started to bag her purchase, she stated in tones most noble, "I don't use plastic!"
She then insisted that her carton of cigarettes, gallon of chocolate milk, snack cakes, and assorted other processed food stuffs be placed in her Mother Gaia approved reusable shopping bags.
One of us is missing something.
