1. That was a joke that clearly went over your head.

 

2. I'm dead serious, other than reusable bags, I've never heard of paying for grocery bags.

Governments are starting to pass laws requiring stores to charge for plastic bags as a way to cut down on waste.

 

 

When I was in Colorado in January, I was shopping in King Soopers and was asked, while self-checking out, how many bags I had used and informed there would be a very small fee per bag.  Haven't seen anywhere in Florida doing it yet.

Seriously. Good thing I had insomnia last night or I would have been even more annoyed to be woken up when people starting shooting off 30 minutes of fireworks at 1:45 a.m.

I have about a hundred of the re-usable bags with handles that I forget to grab damn near every time I go to the store.

I keep mine in the trunk of my car.  Otherwise I'd never remember to bring them to the store.

 

 

I keep mine in the trunk and still forget.

 

 

I always forget them.  That's why it grinds my gears :P  Point taken though

Seriously.  SERIOUSLY.  Especially with my beagle scared to death and running outside to howl each time one goes off.  The problem is that I know damn well that it's someone on the cul-de-sac behind me and that they've been shooting them off every night for the past several weeks.  Problem is that I can't figure out which house it is and the police last year proved to be incapable of sticking their heads out of their patrol cars to track down where all the loud kabooms are coming from.  I almost want to get a drone just to be able to track down which backyard has the red blooded 'murikans playing with matches so I can pass the address to the authorities.

People who insist on standing at the urinal right next to you, when there are like ten more free that they could have gone to instead.

 

Yes, huge gear grinder.  So uncomfortable and unnecessary.

 

Next time it happens to you, act as if you're finished, then squirt a quick stream on their leg.  Apologize profusely afterward, but hose 'em down.  They'll never do it - to you or anyone else - again.
