Asking Now Would Be Mountainously Awkward

, , , | Right | June 1, 2018

(I am the dumb one in this story. I am currently living pretty far up a mountainside, and the closest shop is down a very steep and rocky downhill, about a ten-minute climb. This happens while I’ve done my shopping and is checking out.)

Cashier: “That will be [amount]. Do you want any bags with your shopping?”

(I look at my shopping of several milk cartons, bread, and various small items.)

Me: “Nope! Thank you.”

(Then realizing I really should have said yes, but too awkward to ask for a bag, I start stuffing my jacket pockets and arms with groceries and walk out with what I can only imagine was an “Oh, shit!” expression. I really hope he thought I had a car, and was not just some weirdo that enjoys climbing mountain roads with bread in their mouth!)
