After the exodus, those left behind get to stretch out.
My problem is with the directions. When reading the directions, I always have to look back up at the ingredient list to search through it to find whatever ingredient they are referencing just to find out the amount of that ingredient. How hard would it be to put the amount needed of an ingredient right in the directions too? A sample:
– 2 slices bread
– 2 tsp. butter
– 2 tbsp. strawberry rhubarb jam
1. Toast bread (2 slices).
2. Remove bread from toaster, spread butter (2 tsp.) and jam (2 tbsp.) on each slice of bread equally.
Eh? Eh? So much easier! No rereading the ingredient list to find out how much butter or jam! It’s all right there! No going back and forth from directions to ingredients! Someone please write some computer code to automatically change online recipes to display this way.
If companies defaulted to not bagging instead of automatically bagging for one item, both business owners and environmentalists could be happy. How much money could companies save if they didn’t have to give a bag away for each single-item purchases? How many bags could be saved if we didn’t use them to carry single-item purchases?
It’d be an easy way for companies to claim ‘greenness’, and save me from having to ask not to have my item bagged every time. Because isn’t that what we’re all working toward? Not having to talk to anyone anymore in daily transactions?
