Gas station worker shows cup holder bag trick
In a now-viral TikTok, a gas station attendant demonstrates a nifty trick to turn a plastic bag into a cup holder for customers buying two drinks.
TikToker user Joshua (@joshuaellle) posted the video on April 4th. The video was viewed more than 4.7 million times within 24 hours.
In the video, a gas station attendant places a filled beverage cup on one side of a plastic bag, next to the handle. Then she folds the other side of the bag and places the second drink on the opposite side. She simply pulls up on the handles to reveal a handy plastic drink holder.
