Price of a potato in Barbados: $4.63 PLUS 6 cents for the plastic bag!

Plastic bags being sold to customers by weight: at the same price as the produce

I went to buy a potato from TriMart Supermarket, yes the same with the potato last week. Ingrunt me decided to ask the cashier to weigh without bag as the $4.69 was too much. People that damn bag was costing me 6 cents would you believe! From ingrunt to foolish, now to wise, I told cashier even at the new price of $4.63 me nah buy that potato.

The plastic bag was being sold unknowingly to me and at the same cost-per-pound of a potato. That is Highway Robbery!
