After the male cashier at Bath & Body Works rang up my purchase he asked, "Ma'am, would you like a bag for your pump soaps?"
In my head: "No, Sir! I would not like a bag. I am going to carry all 6 of these soaps one mile through the mall while I continue shopping and then another mile back to my car. I'm not trying to conserve paper here! Give me a bag!!"
Out loud: "Yes. I'd like a bag, please."
After he loaded the soaps into the 2 cent paper bag, he said, "Ma'am, may I get your phone number?"
In my head: "Why would Bath & Body Works need my phone number? Maybe they want to take a survey asking customers whether or not bags are really a necessity!"
Out loud: "No, Sir! I am not comfortable giving out my phone number!"
I grabbed my purchases and ran out of the store before he could ask me for his bag back!
