So. I learned something at the supermarket today.
My hands were ridiculously full with various foodstuffs after my hubris caused me to scorn the practicality of a trolley or basket.
While juggling my prospective purchases I attempted to tear off a single plastic bag with my one free hand in order to put some rogue oranges into. This was a critical error. I failed in my quest and only succeeded in pulling out an endless “string” of conjoined plastic bags.
After witnessing my struggle a kind elderly lady came to my aide. My dear saviour deftly stopped the bag carousel with one hand and effortlessly tore a bag from the head of the ridiculously long bag snake I’d created. As she handed me the trophy she stated “These things can be tricky!”
Indeed they can my dear, indeed the can.
The elderly. They’re alright.
