I went to asda today to buy some basic stuff from them when I went to the check out She asked me do i have a bag or you need a bag .I said I need a bag but I don't want to buy one and the cashier told me there are bags and I start to pack but I put one size and come out to other size the bag can even hold anything it just went apart .I said to cashier what the point to give customers a bag which can not hold anything .and She said not my problem your problem ,I was so angry at that point and I repeat my point again .she than said not her fault and shake her shoulders and serve other customer. Any one here got this problem before??

    At our asda if you dont buy or reuse they will only give you one bag at a time! So when doing a big shop, you pack one bag, wait while the cashier finds and opens another to give you and so it goes on, its maddening. Shopping bags are a personal bug bear of mine. They make huge profits on shopping, if they have targets for reducing bags in landfill shouldnt they research green shopping bags or let you use their old cardboard boxes! Madness!

    Rant over, lol.

    Yup, to go with everything else, we now have the carrier bag police to contend with too. Though I have to say Asda bags are slightly better quality than Co-Op who must use the thinnest, microniest plastic there is and you have to double bag anything over a kilo (I think that's a billion grams to my historical friends...) thus defeating the object.

    No carrier bag police! They ask you if you need bags and if you do they give you a handful although most of the time theres some there anyway. I think they've strengthened the bags too to encourage you to use them again, but we use them to dispose of nuclear nappies!

    I now have this mental image of a "diet coke ad" type checkout chap throwing carrier bags in the air and shouting free carrier bags for all, lol.

    I do hate the way some checkout operators glare at you when you've asked for a bag like you've just trodden dog sh*t through the store.

    Maybe the stores make personally pay for each one they give out, you know, every penny helps and all that balls?

    lol. When you have a screaming toddler demanding everything within toddler height range and a seriouly overdue big shop, those checkout operators get drunk with power, its a wonder there arent more serious checkout punch ups!

    Sainsburies give points for bring in bags too, but whenever we can we now shop at the co-op as we get dividends, much better range these days, and sone really good wine at sensible prices.

    Well, they they might build on green belt land wherever, whenever they want by bribing/blackmailing/threatening local councils, operate borderline legal tax avoidance schemes on a national scale and devastate local shops and communities, but as long as they give out free carrier bags, f**k it, they're okay in my book...

    I had an incident with one of those new scan as you shop machines in Tesco, i dropped it and broke it and two assistants came to look at the wreckage, they both pointed at it open mouthed like they do in the body snatchers, and then on the way out my little one tried to dash out through the barriers the wrong way and got hit in the face, the body snatcher checkout ppl came over and muttered about my parenting skills being no better than my handling of technology.

    Suffice to say im scared to go in again.

    Probably should add that child was ok though, lol.

    I think you were mistaken. Their look of disbelief was that someone in Mansfield was actually offering to pay for their shopping rather than having it out of the back doors as per normal...

    Whereabouts in Mansfield do you live? I was born not far from the Field Mill football ground but lived all over Mansfield, Sutton and Kirkby when I was still a northerner.

    I'm beginning to think that Morrison's must be strange as they usually have plenty of bags available and checkout people seem quite to put more out should you need them. Of course, the fact they give some of my money to Clarkson sidekick and irritating prick in his own right, Richard Hammond, is another matter.

    I'm with you there Chris, and I'd rather suffer a thousand years of carrier bags slowly rotting in the ground than five more minutes of "Hamster Hammond" rotting my brain...

    Didn't realise they had Asda supermarkets in London, thought they were only in the north. I've led a sheltered life!

    Funny thing about supermarkets and their shopping bags - have you noticed how when you go to them they are scarily tight with plastic bags.

    However, when they deliver to you they only put 2 - 4 things in each bag, they're all half empty.

    (I like the delivery driver though, so it's worth the plastic bags for my 'Coke break' moment!) :lol:
