Bags Vs. Sacks

So here's the facts:

This is a bag:

and this is a sack:

I don't understand why customers at work act confused when I ask them if they want a sack for the 1 item they're buying and then proceed to say, "Do you mean a Bag?"

No, I mean a sack - they are free. You have to buy the bags!

What do you think?



  1. I definitely always considered a bag to be the plastic ones (as in Wal-Mart variety) and sacks to be the brown paper ones (as in Crest).

  2. Haha. Thanks for your input. Maybe since I'm from a little hick town - we just got the lingo wrong!
