Man tip: Have your wife load up both arms and interlock your fingers, keeping your arms close to your body. You can carry a lot of groceries with much less fatigue as well as spread the bags a bit to mitigate circulation issues. With all the bags you are holding, it frees up your wife's hand to open the door.
This is because you are a man
In two years living in the US I probably collected more plastic bag waste than in my entire life before. Packing to things in a flimsy bag and.... take the next one. WTF. Eventually I started bringing a foldable shopping box with me. You wouldn't believe how many random strangers asked me what this is as if it was some kind of black magic :-D
God forbid people use 1 or 2 big, sturdy bags. But nah
I once injured some nerves in my right arm doing just that. I had almost no feeling in the upper half of my index finger for 5-6 months afterwards.
If venom was made out of plastic
I only ever saw so many plastic bags when I went shopping in South Africa. Why is this even still a thing? I hated all the plastic I had to throw away every time. There was no way to reuse all of them.
