17 GIFS that perfectly capture the supermarket experience

When you arrive at peak hour

And somebody throws out a plastic bag before they’ve even left the store

Before biting into a Chomp. Apparently they needed that bag for a 6 second trip.

When you check to see if you remembered your reusable bag

And then the first person you see is someone you can’t stand, so you keep your earphones in.

When people insist on walking side by side, so you have to spiderman the shelf to pass them

So you make your way past the deli meats

And then you run into that first person again

You get all your items in record time

And there’s an empty line at the self check-out

But you notice the guy to your left is piling up his groceries in plastic bags

And uses a whole bag just for milk

He looks at you all like “No, but I need these”

But you learnt about Environmental Sustainability in your Arts core

And as you look the other way, you see tartan-trolley-lady packing her groceries in her own bags

And know that the two of you are cooler than one-bag-milk-guy

He tries one more time to make excuses

So you turn and give him one last goodbye

    Haha I enjoyed this post! On a serious note, I actually started bringing reusuable totes to the supermarket and now the checkout lady knows me as “bag lady”… I’m not sure how I feel about that HAHA

      Haha you have to wear the bag lady badge with pride, Michelle! The self check out manager at my local said “good on you” to me the other day! Now we chat every day! Do you think supermarkets should start charging for plastic bags?

      Isn’t it so frustrating?! They have made little capsules that hold reusable bags that you can attach to your keys! There’s no excuse anymore!
      So glad you liked the post! Thanks Laura!
      What do you think the next step is for NSW? Charge for plastic bags?
