The Brazilian Way To Carry Grocery Bags

In Brazil, grocery stores can be quite far from the favela. Because carrying plastic bags with your hands over long distances is painful, Brazilian people who don’t have cars have come up with two novel methods to carry groceries that transfer the load to their shoulders.

The Saddlebag Method

This is usually done with four bags. It leaves your hands mostly clear in case you need to carry additional items like toilet paper or a pack of Bartles & Jaymes wine coolers.

The T-Shirt Method

This method can only be done with two bags. You tie the ends of each bag together and put your head through the big hole as if you were putting on a t-shirt. I like this method when I want my hands to be completely free to text girls I met at the club.

I’ve never seen anyone carry grocery bags like this outside of Brazil, even in other South American countries like Argentina or Colombia. It’s a purely Brazilian innovation that I’ve been using for about two years. My hope with this post is to spread the idea throughout the world so I can see other people doing it while I’m doing it. I can only imagine the intense look that will be exchanged.

You should try the double saddle bag…where you hang 4 more off of your belt.

Might be a good way to pick up Brazilian girls in the US.

if you look at the blue shirt from the side, it almost makes you look like you’ve got a bit of a gut, but the grey from the side keeps you looking slim

how are you going to choke on that? I’m more concerned that the plastic might break if the load’s a bit on the heavy side

This method kinda sucks because it covers up all the brazilian breasts i want to see. Im staying for 2 months in brazil soon. Hope i dont encounter this too much.

Wow. That is one ugly mother fucker. The room is microscopic. Girls don’t dig that. The bed is basically humping against the “kitchen.” Pathetic.

No need to shit on the pad. It has everything a true player needs to self actualize: bed, fridge, pussy, done.
Everything else is superfluous.

And by pussy I mean the kitten folder.

I am brazilian ( from Belo Horizonte ) and never seen that. Maybe it is only a Rio de Janeiro trait.

Btw very nice blog, keep up the good job Roosh.

Not a bad idea, but someone walking around like that would look aspergery outside of Rio.
