it’s not bubble wrap [day 110]

I had to pick up a few things at Kroger yesterday.  It was enough groceries to warrant the use of a cart, but few enough to use the express lane.  Most of the time I remember to bring in my green bags, and this time was no exception.  Some of the items included two gallons of milk and two bottles of wine.  As I was checking out, the girl asked if I wanted my milk in a bag.  I said yes because two fit nicely in the green bags and it makes them easier to carry.  I like that they ask though.

Then we get to the wine.  She asks if I’m old enough, and I tell her yes, more than twice over.  She might have been new, but she looked a little confused about how to bag the wine so they wouldn’t break.  She wraps the first one in a plastic bag, tying it in knots that will never come out.  (A)  If I have green bags, I’m probably using them to avoid plastic.  (B) A plastic bag is not going to protect that wine bottles from breaking.

I always bring more green bags than I’ll need, so I had enough to used them to wrap the wine bottles and pad the bottom of the bag.  She was really nice, maybe new, and you’ll be happy to know I didn’t lecture her or give her the link to my blog.  😉
