I saw the most ridiculous thing today while standing in line at Michael's Craft Store. The woman ahead of me purchased an item the size of a package of birthday candles. The clerk asked if she wanted a bag for her item and the woman said yes. For ONE freakin' item no bigger than a sponge! To make it worse, the woman was carrying one of those large purses that when carried on her shoulder actually touched her hip. Ladies, if for no other reason, we carry purses like this to cart items around as we hop along our individal bunny paths.
The kicker was that after the clerk placed her small item and unnecessarily long receipt in this extraneous plastic bag, the woman put the purchase IN her purse! She didn't even carry it out of the store in her hand! Unbelievable. $50 bucks says she threw the bag away when she got home.
