It's no secret that I hate bagging people's items. I don't know why I hate it, I just do.
So when a customer comes up to my register, I always try a little trick in order to not have to bag anything.
Whenever I'm done scanning their stuff, I will always scrunch the items together as close as I can in order to make it look smaller.
The smaller it looks, the better chance they won't want a bag.
This works. It really does. The customer leaves thinking they hardly bought anything, and I end up happy I didn't have to lick my fingers to open up a plastic bag for them. It's a win-win situation.
But I still get the douchebags that want a bag for the 35 cent piece of gum they are buying. Those people will never die.
