Yeah, like I'm going to shove a 24 count carton of pop down my shorts.
And then there's the time factor between scanning and getting the item into one of those plastic bags (which are all stuck together) before you get the dreaded "PLEASE PLACE ITEM IN THE BAGGING AREA!!" Have you ever tried to get a 24 dbl roll pack of AngelSoft TP into one of those bags? LOL
At the grocery by me, there is an open scale next to the one with the four rotating bags where you can place larger items such as TP...
