Why recycling is unlikely to catch on in my city

Convenience store clerk: Will that be all?

Me: Yes.

Annoyed convenience store manager: You need to try to sell these. (He points to a big stack of cloth shopping bags next to the register.)

Clerk: What are they?

Manager: Hippie bags.

Clerk: Oh. (turning to me), Would you like to buy a hippie bag?

Me: No, thanks. I’m not much of a hippie.

Clerk: OK.
