So, here I go.

My pet peeve: plastic bags!  I take my own bags to the store and always get the weirdest looks.

Except at Krogers (usually), where they even give me 5 cents back for every bag I use of my own. I like that.

HOWEVER, those teenagers do NOT know how to pack a friggin bag (another pet peeve).
Yesterday, I went grocery shopping, and I have my items on the conveyor belt, and I tell my son, "Okay, you and your sister hurry up and fill up the bags." so as they are trying to fill up the bags, two teenagers who work there came up and started putting items in plastic bags, to which I exasperatedly reply "Please, I do not want plastic bags". I then get eyerolling, and two very unenthused teenagers putting four items in each bag and thinking the bag is filled up.

These are canvas bags for Pete's sake! My net bag alone can hold 40 pounds!

Not to mention that while I am trying to pay for my groceries, it is a timed event to put everything in the bags to free up the space for another customer! ( Yet another pet peeve)

By the way, those of you who are reading this: thank you for reading my whine session. I am sure there will be more to come.
As a token of my appreciation, I would like to pass on a wonderful link to a website I like to use  to purchase my bags:

http://www.reusablebags.com/

For those of you who already know about the site, I have nothing to offer, except maybe a bond of understanding about the perils of grocery shopping.

In a nutshell, I am an avid opponent of grocery shopping- the necessary evil.
