Thought I had stumbled upon the next Rock Paper Scissors – an activity everyone knows with a little-known ferocious competitive subculture. “They put one hand in the bag and use the other hand to flip stuff in,” said my bagger, miming what looked like a torrent, a streak, a rainbow of canned goods flying over the lip of the bag.
So cool, I thought.
But then I looked on YouTube and from the clips I could find, it’s actually pretty boring. (Imagine!) No flying groceries. I think this could be taken to a much higher level. Perhaps we’ve only scratched the surface of competitive grocery bagging.
