She was at Target, doing a LOT of shopping.
Once she had finished loading all the groceries onto the belt, she headed down to where the checker was bagging her items. There were already so many bags! She started examining and noticed the checker was putting one or two items in one bag. She began combining items, to reduce the number of bags she was taking home with her.
After she had arranged her items in as few bags as possible, she quickly explained to the checker that she was trying to use less bags and save the earth, and then she handed her the large stack of empty bags. The checker then threw them in the garbage! She said to her: "That's not the point!"
But the checker's body language indicated that she didn't hear one word, or see her efforts at all. Ugh.
