Don't they have paper bags in America for groceries? I've seen them in movies loads of times, and we all know what we see in movies are true  ;)

for all of you younger folk, paper bags were the norm in the late 60s early 70s , they were thick reinforced paper with thick handles.

North America is all plastic for grocery stores.  Things are moving to people bringing their own bags or getting dinged a nickel per bag (which was unheard of a decade ago).

To be fair i'm not sure how much further this Plastic v Paper Bags discussion could go. I think it might have reached it's peak a few posts before our interruption  :P

What was all that about high jacking threads.......

My bad - i apologise.

Slightly more on topic than my jokes about Steve's old age - my other half is a retail manager - they've just received an email telling them that they will soon have to start charging public per plastic bag used in store. As im a ditzy blonde, and its rather early in the morning, i can neither remember the price nor the date from which it becomes effective!

No, there was a reason i thought that, it wasn't just an assumption. Only i can't remember what it was now lol Certainly not a generalization based on some silly pre conception like 'because you like women's football' or owt like that! I don't do generalizations you should know that.

Anyway apologies if i was wrong i just wish i could remember why. And i can't even remember what you look like now so it wasn't a silly one based on your appearance either :)

Im jesting Steve.

Yes my other half is a woman.

And if i think back - i think on a thread about half time pies / catering i mentioned "my gf takes sweets in her bag". And i suppose to look at i fit all the stereotypes too!

No need to apologise, i was just playing!

Eeeeee ya little bloody tinker, winding me up  :D (That's the polite version ;))

Knew i'd seen it somewhere though. As for "fitting stereotypes" - to normal, none judgemental people there is no such thing as stereotypes, you are who you are. I have a few friends judgemental people would be convinced are gay, but they're happily married to women and have kids.
