Today I loaded a customer's purchases into one of our large bags. The items were bulky, but not heavy, and the bag was not overly full or bulging or strained. I am very cautious about loading bags.
Then she asked for a double bag because "she had a ways to walk."
I am going to comment and judge her based on my own life. I know where she was going because I confirmed her address when I rang her up. She was going 3 blocks, a 5 minute walk, 0.4 miles. That is not far. I walk everywhere. My walking commute is 3 times this distance, and I don't consider that "far." I carry everything, so I know when a bag is too heavy or awkward or weak. She was just thoughtlessly paranoid.
I didn't give her a bag. I reassured her that the bags can hold 40-45 pounds (which they can; we've tried). Had she INSISTED, I would have double bagged, but it was an unnecessary and ridiculous request.
There are many bad bag packers out there, but not me. I am sure I have bragged about this before, but I am really good at packing a bag. CUSTOMERS! Rest assured that in my hands, your precious purchases are safe and smartly packed.
