It’s Out of the Bag.

January 24, 2010

I was working in a supermarket as a checkout operator and packer in the mid eighties and I used to faithfully pack up our customer’s groceries in brown paper bags. They had a nice square bottom and placing items into the bag was easy. The mouth of the bag was always open, the sides stood up straight, and they were strong. If you were worried that it wasn’t strong enough, you could always ‘double bag’. Even better, you could always use a box and supermarkets always had lots of boxes.
