So, I went to 7-11 (which is less than a half of a block from my house) to get a six pack of beer. As my name indicates, I like to drink. Anyway, there were several police officers inside, drinking coffee and eating donuts. I guess, taking a break. I thought nothing of them as I grabbed my favorite pale ale and headed toward check-out. The clerk scanned my purchase and then went to grab a plastic bag. I told him, "I don't need the plastic bag, I am right next door." He said, "I have to bag it, it is a law and the cops are right there." "Fine!" I said, "I'll kill the environment for them." I took my bagged beer and walked the 25 feet home. Now, I am mad enough to post a new thread. I am the guy who buys the re-usable bags because I deplore using one of the least biodegradable substances known to man to carry beer 25 feet. I know I could have just not bought the beer but, should I be forced to make such a decision?
