    The correct phrase is "I've brung it.".

    sorry, must disagree with you, 'brung' is so grammatically wrong, that it sounds so utterly vulgar.
    Y'all take care now.

    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.

    Actually I have relatives and friends that work for various retailers and most of us and their colleagues are getting sick n tired of customers saying they have forgotten bags.

    Even I have seen customers mutter similar.

    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.

    Because Costa as a company are a money grabbing company, so they saw a chance to ripoff an extra 5p of customers.

    Go n there again and when they tell you the paper bag is 5 pence, just say I'll leave it then and walk away. That will leave them with a panini they can't sell.

    I would have done, but I'd already paid for the panini... and I was hungry!

    Hi,

    don't like Bruv either, so common,

    I'd rather be a bro, you know, like a Mason brother, though I'm not involved with them as I don't join secret societies,
    Y'all take care now.
