To avoid the each-item-gets-its-own-bag syndrome at larger supermarkets, I bring my own canvas bag. Has anyone else encountered a range of reactions from checkout and bagging people ranging from an eye-rolling "what's with this guy" attitude to downright rude comment-- usually from the bag-boy? I am a fairly hale middle-age guy, and i couldn't believe this kid had the nerve to mouth off. I suggested he apologize profusely. He did.
