And yet the cashier still put it in a plastic bag for me.
Why are shops so obsessed with giving you plastic carrier bags whatever you do nowadays?
I'm sure I'm quite capable of walking around with an onion for hours on end without the said onion causing me too much fatigue (may get a bit boring though, but I'm not entirely sure the carrier bag would help with much with that though and I'm not going to put it to the test...).
Surely it's just wasteful the amount we use carrier bags when we don't need them. I'm not sure I know of anyone who's capable of carrying a carrier bag, but not an onion.
