The person who created the plastic shopping bag deserves to be choked with his own invention. Reasons:

  • The plastic doesn't break down, contributing to flying litter
  • The bags fall down and can't hold shape with items in it
  • There isn't a checkout clerk in America who knows how to fill these things--I end up with 4 extras of these on every grocery trip where each bag has 1-3 items in it!
  • They have less strength than an 92 year old woman with degenerative bone disorder
  • They use more oil since they are plastic
These things are aweful, let's just get rid of them completely already. And I'm FAR from a tree hugger. Give me back my paper sack that holds its shape and degrades with water and sun!
