Paper or plastic?

My co-workers at the grocery are great. I was familiar with many of them already, having shopped at this store since we’d moved here. There are at least nine non-American nationalities represented, including Ghanaian, Haitian, German, and Cambodian. I’m definitely not the only one with a weird job history. One person used to be in advertising. Someone else worked in the music industry during the ’80s and ’90s boom times. Another drove military transport trucks in Afghanistan. Several people are getting their degrees. One guy’s studying physics after switching from literature. Another person recently finished back-to-back poli-sci and math degrees. Another owned a pair of small delis in a nearby city and finally gave it up for the stability and health care of working for someone else. [link]
