Change the Milk Bag

In Canada, we use bags of milk. It’s weird at first but you get used to it. The milk bag goes into a plastic pitcher that holds it upright. A corner of the bag is then cut leaving a small hole that the milk can pour through.

Part of my night time ritual as a kid was drinking a glass of milk before bed. If there was a bit of milk left in the pitcher, I’d fill my cup but leave just enough that I can place it back into the fridge. I didn’t empty the milk pitcher because then I would have to replace it. The next person that uses it would replace it instead.

Now, I know better. Good housemates always change the milk bag.

This can be generalized to many other things too.
