it's not easy being green...

It happens many times a day, I look up toward the bread case and someone is fumbling with a bread bag trying to get it open. "Lick your finger and rub the end without the writing...yeah, that's it!" (I'm like a cheerleader!)... Sometimes, especially if it's an older person who's hands don't work so well, I walk over and do it for them...sheepishly explaining along the way, that while they may be a pain, they are made of corn and will compost in 90 days, the person usually nods with mock enthusiasm and we move on with the transaction. If I know them really well I give them my acronym for these new bread bags...P.C.P.A. (Politically Correct Pain in the Ass)
