I Had a Fight With a Produce Bag…and I Lost
All I wanted to do was stop at the supermarket, pick up some vegetables and get dinner started for my wife, who was getting home a little late last night. Pretty simple, right? Simple until I tried to open one of those flimsy produce bags. I twisted the top (which turned out to be the bottom), I rubbed it between my fingertips, I even tried to blow on it. All I managed to accomplish was providing entertainment for a small group of shoppers who had stopped to watch.I called a supermarket worker over, looked at him and said, “This bag is broken.” You had to see his face. I wanted to see how much fun I could have with it, so before he responded I asked him if I should take the bag to customer service. He just gave me this quizzical look and offered to open it for me, which he did in exactly 1.5 seconds, much to the pleasure of the growing crowd. All this for some broccoli.
I’m glad I’m not alone in this dilemma. Check out this story on enviromom.com. If you have a trick to open those ridiculous bags, please comment below. I can use all the help I can get!
