Ichido Wants You to Save the Environment

[FERRET attempts to buy some bread at Ichido, the Japanese bread/cake shop extraordinaire. As he seeks to pay for his prepackaged half-loaf of bread, the CASHIER begins to put the bread in a paper bag.]

FERRET

我不要袋子。

I don’t want a bag.

CASHIER

好的。

Okay.

[The CASHIER begins to put the bag away, but her ASSOCIATE stops her. Speaks to FERRET.]

ASSOCIATE

你需要用袋子。

You need to use a bag.

FERRET

为什么?

Why?

ASSOCIATE

如果你没有袋子,你看起来可疑的。他们会觉得你偷了面包。

If you don’t have a bag, you look suspicious. They will think that you stole the bread.

FERRET

[叹气] 好的。

[sighs] Okay.

[FERRET pays, takes the bag, and walks away. As he walks, he inspects the bag, and finds himself a little perturbed by the irony of the situation:]

“偶” 不污染地球!

Ow” Don’t pollute the environment!
