Wal-mart cashier refused to bag my stuff- Your Thoughts

I asked a cashier at our grocery store. She said no one lost their job.

I can believe her because there are so many staff pushing carts around doing shopping for customers.

Also, another cashier told me that most of them prefer the other jobs more than standing at the till.¯⁠\⁠_⁠(⁠ツ⁠)⁠_⁠/⁠¯

According to a Wally World employee whose info has been spot on so far, cashiers will eventually be phased out. Upgrades to stores include doubling the number of self-check stations. The informative employee has not said anything about what will become of cashiers. Early retirement? Layoffs? Switch to order fillers and vehicle loaders? I still insist that Wally World and other stores need to find a way to reduce my cost because I am performing tasks for which their employees are remunerated. They need to figure out how to do this without going broke. !

I no longer worry about cashier hands and non-store bags. Carts can be infested. Produce and enclosed products can be infested. Otherwise clean bags might become infested during their time in an infested cart...

oh my god, I feel so old. I remember when grocery stores all had baggers at the end of the belt and they knew how to arrange the items to protect them on the trip home. They even double wrapped ice cream in these thicker bags. Then those baggers pushed your cart to a loading area. My parents drove our car around to the loading area where a guy was waiting to load your bags into your car for you.
And on the way home we stopped for gas and our gas was pumped for us. And we weren't rich people, we were just people living in a culture of civility.
First they took away the car loaders
Next they took away the baggers (although occasionally you might see one or two still around)
Now they've taken away many cashiers
Where I live now, they've taken away the bags....and don't tell me it's for environmental reasons...at least one store here locally sells disposable bags right at the register.
To heck with them all. Especially Walmart, I hate going there. It's a human jungle.

How much pollution is created during the production and possible use of each reusable bag?

I agree about the dwindling service over time. We get less and less bang for our buck.
