Needs To Drop Their Baggage

| Working | March 10, 2015

(My county has outlawed plastic bags; and now you must bring a reusable bag or pay a small fee for paper bags. On this day, I’m buying a case of beer and a case of soda.)

Cashier: “Is that all?” *scans, pauses, and then grabs two paper bags*

Me: “Wait. I don’t need bags, and these boxes wouldn’t fit anyway.”

Cashier: “If you don’t bring a bag, we gotta charge you for paper.”

Me: “But I don’t need bagsā€¦ These are already packaged, and they’re going right in my truck.”

Cashier: “Hey, it’s the law! No bag, we charge you for paper!”

(At that point, another cashier came over and they have a brief, hushed, conversation. Angrily, the cashier finished the transaction. As I left, I could still hear her saying ‘he’s supposed to bring bags…’)
