  • I'm not a fan of it but my wife always saves plastic cups and plastic forks to reuse and I just look at her and think "What is your problem?"

    OMG - may they rest in peace, my parents did the same thing.  When I took them to visit my sister in PA and we stopped at a rest stop for something to eat, my dad cut his piece of cake with a knife, wiped it off with a napkin and handed it to my mom who put it in her pocketbook.  On the way out, my mom stopped at the condiment table and took plasticware, ketchup packets, sugar, etc.  I was so embarrassed.  I wanted to tell her to put it all back but that would have drawn even more attention.

  • LOL, ugh I remember my grandparents clearing off the restaurant table's condiments after we were finished eating.  Do you think what I'm seeing are the warning signs and it's only going to get worse?

    I certainly hope not although there are some things that I do lately that make me think I', becoming one of my parents.  I threw out a bag full of plastic bags from the newspaper deliveries and from the weekly advertisements they put in our lobby.  Don't ask me why I was keeping them in the first place.  The only thing I've taken from the condiment table is a small packet of chili flakes because I would never use up the normal size from the supermarket.  In fact, I haven't even opened the packet I took.

    I've even mended a couple of them. The elastic was only held by a dab of glue so I stapled them back on, sharp ends outwards.

    Good idea durdle I got a uv-c wand, it kills viruses and germs and even bugs and fungus spores, so I can sterilize masks in seconds, I had it before the pandemic because of asthma allergy with my son. They're very expensive now, no surprise!
