Question of the Day #1,024
Last night, after picking up my car at the dealer, I stopped in at the grocery store.
As the bagger loaded my veggies into paper bags, he said, "Next month these will cost 10 cents each."
"Really?" I asked.
"That's great," I said.
The bagger cocked an eyebrow at me.
"I usually use the reusable bags. But since I didn't plan on coming here tonight, I don't have them with me."
"I think charging people for bags could be good incentive for people to reuse."
"Or good incentive for them to get mad."
I thought about that for a second.
"I'd say 'screw 'em' but that won't make it any easier for you, will it?"
He smiled at me and shook his head.
How do you feel about being charged for bags?
