MY FAVOURITE personal moments in life now seem to be confined within the timeline of 10pm till 3am. Sitting on my balcony chair and having a slow *** oking cigar, I have the luxury of time and the quiet of the night to reflect on the happenings of the day and to gather my thoughts on my plans for tomorrow. I write best during these hours, free of interference especially on the need of having a conversation with my wife.
When one has too much free time, the mind wanders freely, picking up on the random issues in life to gripe about, be it daily happenings that affects your life or politics that affects the economy.
The key question on my mind is always about the motive behind the actions and the motivation that drives such actions.
My gripe today is about plastic bags. Yes, it is about the availability of plastic bags to place my purchases when I shop at my favorite supermarket in Bangsar. Earlier this month, this supermarket completely stopped making available plastic bags at the checkout counter in their campaign to save the planet.
When the government made the decision some years back to force consumers to pay 20 cents for a plastic bag (which costs a few cents), supermarkets all over the country rejoiced at the prospect of turning cost into profits besides saving the planet as well. My favorite supermarket introduced recyclable bags which was a great campaign as I see many shoppers especially housewives bringing these bags on their shopping trips.
As I am not a househu *** and, I would normally go straight to the supermarket from my office to pick up some groceries without any recyclable bags. Consumers are now familiar with the question from the checkout counter cashier: “Do you want to use a plastic bag?” I would normally be glad to pay for the five to 10 plastic bags which incidentally are recycled at home, used in the many *** all garbage bin receptacles in my house.
In this instance two weeks ago, I was faced with the dilemma of not having the choice of buying plastic bags as the supermarket made the decision to force consumers to use recyclable bags if they want to shop at their supermarket. The cashier pointed out to me the availability of five different designs and sizes of recyclable bags next to her checkout counter, which costs between RM3.80 to RM19.90 per bag.
Being a griping old man and a regular customer to boot, I stood my ground and insisted they provide me with a proper means of carriage for my RM700 worth of vegetables, meat and bottled plastic drinks. They scrambled and found three used cartons from their back room as I was holding up the queue. I had to apologise to the mother and son waiting behind me who incidentally were not aware of this new policy and did not bring any recyclable bags too.
