    Do shop assistants personally get fined if they fail to charge for a 5p bag or just the employer/company?

    Think it's the employer. Though the employer may want to do disciplinary on them.

    you've had over a month now to get used to it, have you short time memory loss?

    Oh, and you don't 'bring' a bag, you 'take' a bag with you,,,,,if you remember.
    Y'all take care now.

    I get the 5p charge on plastic bags, but it's encouraging other companies who don't need to charge for bags charge for them.

    I went into Costa, bought a hot panini, I wanted a bag as it was hot in my hand. They are paper bags and they wanted 5p for one! Yet Primark don't charge for their paper bags, Eat doesn't either, so why do Costa?

    I do hate when I forget to bring a plastic bag, it happened today, so I fit as much as I can into one bag.

    Sick and tired of people saying they still forget to bring their bags.

    How hard is it to fold a bag for life into a small pouch and stick it in your coat or handbag? I have five bags in my coat and handbag

    Which company do you work for? Asking just so that 1) I don't upset you or your colleagues if I ever happen to forget my bags and 2) to make sure I spend my money somewhere else.

    I have a terrible short term memory. I'm constantly forgetting where I've put my keys or my phone. I often go out and forget to take things I need.

    I often forget to take a shopping bag when I leave home. I often reach a shop and realise I forgot to bring a bag.

    (You take the bag from home. You bring it to the shop.)

    Just before the change my friend bought all the 3p bags he could from aldi in order to sell to ocado (who give 5p for any bag returned, even from other supermeerkats). Giving Monet to charity might actually stimulate the economy as the poor are quick to spend what they get. Btw sainsbugs isn't yet directly giving it to charity

    yes, of course, you can take a bag from home, but when you get to the checkout you don't say to the cashier,'I've bringed my own bag you
    would say I've brought my own bag, or no thanks, I have a bag.
    Y'all take care now.

    would say I've brought my own bag, or no thanks, I have a bag.
    The correct phrase is "I've brung it.".
