Engaging In A Paper Chase

| Working | May 8, 2015

(I am checking out with three items at the grocery store, and have forgotten my reusable bag at home. The cashier opens up a plastic bag and looks like she’s about to put my first item in it. For clarity’s sake, the paper bags and the plastic bags essentially hold the same amounts.)

Me: “Do you have any paper bags?”

Cashier: *confused* “You want paper bags?”

Me: “Yes, please, if you have any.”

Cashier: *more confused* “You want paper? For these?”

Me: “Yep!”

Cashier: “It’s like THIS BIG.” *holds hands apart much further than the bag is large*

Me: “It’s not that big.”

Cashier: *pulls one out and holds it up* “It’s THIS BIG!”

Me: “Yeah, I know. I just don’t want to use a plastic bag. I prefer paper.”

Cashier: “But you only have three things.”

Me: “I know, but I don’t want plastic. I would rather use paper, please.”

Cashier: *sigh* “Okay…”
