Do You Need A Bag?

It really pisses me off when I’m in a shop and they ask, “Do you need a bag?”


Of course I need a bag! I’ve bought 2 boxes of cornflakes and a pint of milk! What do you think I’m going to do? Stick them up my arse and waddle home?


Use your head! Of course I need a bag!


Supermarkets are the worst. They try to play on your conscience – and they use that patronising voice: “Do you really need a bag? We’re trying to help save the environment”


How? By employing idiots? How’s that saving the Rain Forest?


It’s not right … I spend my money in their shop – I give them my money – and now they want to charge mefor a bag.


Ok here’s what I do …


I go in on a Saturday morning when they’re at their busiest – with a huge shopping list – I even ask my neighbours if I can pick up anything you them – so I get a huge pile of stuff – a mountain of groceries - then when they say “Do you need some bags?” – I say “No … No I don’t want any bags …


... But can you carry my shopping out to my car please?”
