    I'll buy like five things and they look at me and say "Do you want a bag for that?"

    "No, I'm good; I'll just balance one of these Red Bulls on the end of my nose, like a trained seal"


    I've actually said that.

    I wonder what their criteria is to issue one. At what dollar amount is it OK to give one up?

    it's because the cashiers are lazy fucks and putting things into a bag seems like work to them.

    It really does seem like that. They look like a deer in the headlights when I actually ask for one.

    One of my first jobs was working at a grocery store. I remember that the paper bags cost over twice as much as the plastic bags. Not very expensive though. We're talking like 1 cent versus 2.5 cents. :dontknow:

    cashiers don't care about the cost of bags to the store. they don't want to have to bend over to get a bag and then put the things in it. they're a bunch of turds.

    Do you mean where they give one so you can just bag it yourself? That has been done here as well; yes

    I'm thinking they have been trained to not give one unless someone requests it

    A lot of places around here are; yes.

    I don't buy big things there--the 5 items might be 2 Red Bulls, a cheese stick, small chips, and a granola bar.
