I tried when LA first implemented the 10˘ rule. Apparently the psychic stress of remembering my own bag would need to rise to the level of college finals or something for me to remember. I don't really want to have dreams about forgetting my bags and being in the checkout line in my underwear and I can't remember where my car is. So I just pay.

And hey - now I have a whole bag of incredibly useful sturdy plastic bags for camping or my big trip that I am on. That counts as re-use right? I use them until they get nasty. I would have killed for a sturdy plastic bag in Patagonia. Or a tote (which they were out of) or anything. No bags in the whole region.

but that wasnt good enough for ole bundy and when mt2r let loose his own hot take that trump is not racist and it is absurd to even consider that, bundy had to jump in with the scalding take that it is ok that trump is racist as long as he "protect(s) America from the evil that is extreme Islamic terrorism."

I am quite disappointed there hasnt been an atf post yet.
How does an Aussie even become a Trump superfan? What are they possibly going to get out of the America First Trump presidency? At least awval *might* get a tax break and see fewer scary Muslims in his neighborhood, but Trump isn't going to kick out the aborigines from Australia or ban gay marriage. It's weird as all get out to devote yourself to some foreign politician that 95% of your countrymen think is a moron.

Hmmm, apparently Medford isn't quite rural enough, because I was still met with a "NO SELF SERVICE" sign there yesterday.

Just keep a bag or two in your car at all times and then you're set.

Aldi 'non-reusable' bags will survive the nuclear holocaust. They will be mansions for the cuckaroaches.

Re: January LC Thread **Survivor White House Edition**

I usually get a bag, even if I'm only buying one item. I don't want it to look like I stole a bottle of diet root beer. I take them back to the store after they start to accumulate.

Now that Trump has the stock market at an all time high, virtually no unemployment, and Iran on the run the biggest concern in the minds of the people is shopping bags.

Racist, nationalist, authoritarian icon. It's why Trump loves Erdogan and Duterte. It's why some Americans and people all over the world, even in Poland, are neo-Nazis.

Wait, so you were the one doing coal-rolling donuts in the parking lot whilst waving out the window a plastic bag containing a single 5-stick pack of gum?

Now that Trump has us on the brink of nuclear war and signed a massive transfer of wealth to his rich cronies, we talk of trifles to ease our minds.

I guess there's a chance Praetor1an is an off-brand AC Slater and not an actual braindead deplorable.

Grocery stores here in the flyover hellhole can still give you free bags, but I bring my own because the handles on the free bags suck ass. I would pay $0.10/bag if they were nice bags.

Re: January LC Thread **Survivor White House Edition**

I find it pretty hilarious that Trump could be doing so much better if he was even slightly intelligent. Stock market soaring, unemployment low, Iran looking bad, and a tax reform bill passed...but he can't even keep his mouth shut on twitter, so his approval ratings are still in the tank lol. Like, he has to inject his ego into the NK situation and distract from good press with bad press.

I think it shows the whole, "Trump is a mastermind and is tweeting out in an agenda!" is trash. If he was this PR mastermind, he would just be quiet over the last two weeks and allow the good press to flow. He's not. He's just a child. I don't know why, but that take always tilts me the most, i.e. Trump is a true puppetmaster playing the media

I buy 15-stick packs of Extra Spearmint. I get the 3-packs. It's not exactly coal rolling, it's just that my 18 yo 4-cylinder is burning some oil. And like I said, I return the bags. The store claims they recycle them.

Sorry bu no, the shopping bag thing is a pleasant diversion from people worrying that Trump is going to get us all killed with his Twitter app.

You're forgetting the crucial "remember to grab bags when you go into store" part that I remembered about 1 in 20 times and caused me a lot of stress - until I just gave up.

They are glorious. You could carry 4 2 liters of coke in them and swing them around to your heart's content.
