Maybe it’s because I’m crabby today, but something a customer just said really aggravated me. She bought five bottles of wine and I asked if she wanted me to put them in a box so they’d be easier to carry. She told me that she’d prefer bags because “they changed the recycling rules in [her town] and it’s just too confusing” so she’s “not going to bother anymore.” WTF? How hard is it to cut up some cardboard and place it on the curb on recycling day? I cannot imagine that the town’s rules for recycling are that hard to follow. I swear, some of the pampered women make me crazy. They won’t mind spending hours researching the best doctor for their Botox treatment or looking for the top diet pills, but goodness — spending 10 minutes sorting out the recycling is just too hard.
I should have suggested she start carrying around her own cloth shopping bags.
