We were very excited to buy our cheap, reusable grocery bags. As energy whores who don’t recycle, it was our little effort to save the world. And we feel good about it from the time we walk into the store with our little bags right up to the point that we get to the cashier. Every time, the cashier is tied in knots over having to bag with our reusable bags. On one recent trip, she was trying in vain to get the bag open, yelling to her manager, “I need a BREAK!” And when they’re not mad at us for our small effort at going green, it’s because they have no idea what the bags are for. Another cashier actually tried to put our reusable bags into a plastic bag with our groceries. Don’t blame us! We tried!
