This Fantastic Plastic Planet

So my grocery store will stop using plastic bags entirely. I think California has already banned plastic from being used or maybe it was England that charges for use of plastic... hhmm either way we are stopping. And I think its fantastic, all these plastic carrying fools will have to give it up and go cold turkey. I will only laugh at the lady who wraps EVERYTHING in plastic, I take all the plastic off to scan the items, then wrap it again before I put it in DOUBLE paper bags. What a freaking waste of a person she is ... sorry I meant wasteful.

In fact I think that we should reduce the use of other plastic items like credit cards. I don't like them, I have had one and its expired, don't really need another one. The most disturbing thing I have seen was mothers teaching there little babies how to use their credit card. I can't wait to see the kid in few years when they have maxed out the parents limit buying nothing but stupid baby stuff. Hopefully they buy leashes so they can't run from their parents, I have seen too many people loose there kids in the store. One time this lady lost a 35-40 pd turkey in my store and all I could think was asking her if she had any children, forget the turkey. People will also buy items for less then $1 with a credit card and that baffles me! You don't have change or $1!!! Many more plastic things should be banned like plastic "T and A", and plastic beer bottles (how am I supposed to hit someone over the head with a plastic beer bottle in a bar brawl).

People ask me what is better for the environment, Paper or Plastic (I ALWAYS tell the customer neither of the bags because I am a smart ass), I tell them paper is better because plastic takes longer to Biodegrade ... if they understand that word.

I didn't even realize that beer came in plastic bottles. It seems sacrilegious; but great material for a youtube segment.

i agree about the plastic...

but whenever i have no other choice but a plastic bag i always re-use it by cutting up the plastic into strips and knitting it together and using it in my art projects. it looks cool.

and i have to admit i'm guilty about the whole using credit/debit cards for items that are like a buck or so, because i never carry cash on me anymore. i'm an evil person, i know.
