Annie’s Mailbox: Bags can get too heavy

Dear Annie: I would like to send a request to all grocery store managers, checkout clerks and baggers on behalf of all the little old ladies like myself.

Please do not overfill those reusable grocery bags. Most of them seem to have a capacity of about twice the usual plastic bag, which means that unless you are packing light items, they will be too heavy for many of us to lift. I am not shy about asking to have them repacked, but that slows down the checkout line, which can be annoying for everybody. Thanks very much.

– A Little Old Recycling Bag Lady in Arizona

Dear Arizona: Some people like to have those bags filled to the brim so they have fewer to carry. Smart baggers will ask the customers what their preference is before throwing everything in. But smart customers will tell the bagger in advance if they prefer their bags (recycled or otherwise) on the light side. Try it.
