Why do I always get the question: "Would you like some plastic bags?"
So, just to keep up the fun for next time I wanted to challenge the existing paradigm by actually bringing some plastic bags with me. In other words, I was planning to buy a lof of groceries and then bounce back the usual question. Here comes the question: "Would you like som plastic bags?" And my response, as if nothing was different: "No thank you, I've brought my own" (while pulling them out of my pocket). Oh my! you should've seen the look on her face. It was worth every second of it.
Of course, I know why the staff is instructed to ask whether or not I would like some plastic bags. And I also know why I as the customer should be left with the decision whether or not I want the receipt printed. Yet, it still shows you how weird our society sometimes can be. Don't you think? ;-)
