End of an era

Today I was behind another guy in line at the local CVS. As the teller was handing the man his plastic bag, he told the customer that today was the last day that CVS would be providing plastic bags.

“Starting tomorrow,” he explained, “we will provide paper bags, if you need one, for a charge of five cents per purchase.”

The man looked at the plastic bag in his hand thoughtfully, and then a big grin broke out on his face.

“So this isn’t just a bag,” he said happily. “It is now a valuable historical artifact.”
