My parents also always carry bags in the cars/when they go shopping. Probably also because they shop a lot in Lidl and Aldi, where the plastic bags were always charged (German brands are always a step ahead!), but sometimes they didn’t bring any when shopping at the Intermarché on the other side of the street, where the bags weren’t charged.Hey, I don’t see anything wrong with it, we pay for them here in Vienna! I remember I learned fairly quickly to always carry a bag five years ago when I first lived here – I ain’t paying 0.15€ to 0.20€ every time I go shopping.

If I forget to bring a bag when shopping and the things don’t all fit in my bag, I’ll pay the 0.15€ that a bag costs here. Now the thing is, the bags that you can buy here, are a LOT better than the ones we get down in the Lusitania lands. But then again, you can always choose to take one of the free thin bags where we carry the fruit in – those the supermarkets here give you for free and to be honest, you put some color into them and you have the same bags they are now charging in Portugal.Personally, I had fun reading about all the fuss for the first 5 minutes – now I’m just bored. The one thing I do agree with is with one thing a gentleman said – that he does not want to pay 0.10€ for a bag that will rip up the first time it carries something.
