Our hotel room had a fridge, so we went to the market to stock up on a few drinks and snacks. We weren’t planning to buy a lot of stuff so instead of a cart we just put the items in a hand basket.
At the checkout line, the girl asked me, “Do you want bags for this?”
Am I missing something? “How else are we going to get it to the car?” I asked.
“I’m going to charge you for them,” she said, “so I have to ask you if you want them.”
