Two different types of people:
People are always saying: There are two different types of people in the world, those who like Elvis and those who like the Beatles. Or something to that effect. People like to think that every person who walks the earth falls into either one category or the other opposite one. I think the people who do this fall into one of two categories, they are either judgmental assholes or very astute people watchers who try and bring humor and insight to the internet via a blog.
So with out anymore pretext, here is my first demarcation of the two different types of people in the world. You are either a person who pays extra money at the supper market for the little 4 gallon trash bags for your bathroom. Or you are the type who just uses the plastic shopping bags from said super market to line your bathroom trash can. (As an aside I do realize there are some people who use no bag, or have no can at all, but thats just nasty and I don't want to know you.)
The person who uses the Glad bags may just want to use the right tool for the right job. Or they could be overly concerned with appearances. I'm not saying these are bad people, because they are also most likely the people who get their taxes done in January because it's the right thing to do. They are right in both cases, but it speaks to a certain view of: DOING THING THE RIGHT WAY.
The people who use big two handled bag from the store is most likely a corner cutter, or a penny saver. Neither of those things is wrong either, but their way of doing things may lead to more problems down the road, even if it is easer in the short run. The motto of person #2: Anything worth doing, is worth getting done as fast as possible.
