New Record

OK, i realise that the whole world is catching Olympic fever, but even Coles is in on the act - setting a new record today.

I purchased one item (a 3-pack of sponges) and before you know it the checkout chick is plastic-bagging it. Despite being the approximate size of a tv remote, and the weight of a tennis ball, these sponges are apparently too cumbersome to be transported without assistance - according to Coles.

Obviously i refused the bag, but if i had have been sharper i could have asked for additional bags for my wallet and phone... maybe even an third bag to carry my house keys in :)

I guess this is how we managed to used an extra billion plastic bags last year. Anyway, that's the record. If you can beat it let me know.
