Going bananas?

Just back from the shops and boy was I glared at!

Father asked daughter to get some bananas.

Which she duly did – from the shelves stacked with hands of bananas that were straight from the box…

“No, get a bag for them” said Dad.

So a pack of pre-packed bananas in a bag was chosen by said daughter.

At which point said father got her to put them back and then went to fetch a poly bag from a dispenser and then put a hand of bananas into that bag.

Which is when I picked some bananas up from the shelf, put them in the basket and pointed out to Dad that bananas come ready wrapped…

Cue that death stare!

So much for reducing the amount of poly bags used and disposed of by shoppers every day…
