Wow-local folks are upset with the new Seattle Charge for plastic Shopping bags! And it doesnt even affect the city of Burien! I went shopping today and was verbally abused by a couple of old farts sitting in a used Merc yelling "there goes another one of those goddamn tree huggers!" While being called "Tree hugger" has never upset me in the past, I couldn't for life of me figure out why I was being singled out now? Then it dawned on me...I was carrying my shopping bag! Not being one to miss an argument, I turned around and marched up to the two older gents vehicle and in my most threatening, loudest voice said..."That's right, we took over Seattle and this city is next. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile! There is no escape from the collective."
You never saw two senior citizens get out of a parking lot so fast in your life.
Some days are worth getting up for!
