Plastic Bags Come At A Price

Mrs. Keyrose visited family in Brownsville over the weekend, and she got first-hand experience of the city's plastic bag ban.  Not having her own tote bag handy, she had to stack and haul her craft store purchases with both hands to the car, making sure to maintain proper balance throughout.  At the grocery store, she noticed that some customers made their way out with all their items exposed in the cart.  Apparently, people visiting Brownsville were unfamiliar with the ordinance and didn't want to pay $1 per plastic bag, or reusable tote.  So they just had their groceries scanned and placed back into their carts.  Lesson learned.
