Bagged at Target

HOUSTON - Have you heard about Target's recyclable bag policy?

If you bring a reusable bag to the store, Target will give you a 5 cent discount for NOT using one of its plastic bags. It seems like a good idea to get people thinking about recycling. But it seems like Target employees are missing the point.

I recently walked to a Target near my house, pushing my son in his stroller. At the check-out, I told the clerk I didn't need a bag because I could just put my purchases in the bottom part of the stroller. Then she refused to give me the 5 cent discount because she said I wasn't using a recyclable bag. What??!?

Apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks this is crazy.
