Bitch About a Bag

Posted on Tue, Oct 18, 2011 at 11:46 AM

I recently visited a popular bookstore, purchased a few books, then waited for purchases to be put in a bag. The cashier smiled, and slid the books across the counter to me, no bag. Now, I understand the concept of saving the planet, etc. But are some of these companies confusing being green with being cheap?? You can't give me a bag for a product I purchased with my hard earned cash in your store, but you can leave all your lights on 24 hours a day?? Stop being cheap, start being green and give me a friggin paper bag if you have to!!!! And I'm not paying for a reusable bag. How about showing appreciation to patrons, and give away a few bags? And don't bother leaving any stupid comments about being cheap, because I'm not. I am requesting my purchase be protected until I get home by some sort of container... paper, plastic, metal... I don't care. Don't make us beg for a bag to carry a purchase out of your store!!! —Rained on Book Owner
