What's the deal with grocery store baggers bagging gallons of milk?

Some people like the extra bags for personal uses.

It has a handle already! And if you want it bagged, you could ask them to do it instead of them doing it automatically.

I always tell them "please do not bag that" if they are starting to bag. When I'm forced to bag because we are super busy I ask "would you liked this bagged?" You'd be surprised how many people would.

Lol, they should really be asking people before doing that. P much a huge waste of plastic to be bagging (double bagging? they're heavy) every customer's gallon.

I'm always asked whether I want it bagged or not.

A) It's cold, so it hurts my hands to carry it by the actual built-in handle.

B) Sometimes they leak, and get milk in my car.

I have them bag my milk because I have to walk from my parking lot to the apartment with my 1 and a half year old daughter. The handles on the bag make it so I can hang it on my wrist and carry more of our grocery bags and have my daughter on my hip so I dont have to leave her in the car or the apartment by herself

They often leak, or have leaked milk from other jugs on them already. I'd rather not have milk leaked in my car.

I like it in the summer because it helps insulate the milk.

ANYTHING THAT INVOLVES PUTTING THINGS INSIDE OTHER THINGS IS AWESOME

For me personally, I can carry a bag in either hand but I could only carry the bottle in one hand, because I don't have an opposable thumb on my left hand. Plus I don't drive. So the bags are much, much easier to carry. Plus if anything did leak it wouldn't go all over everything, it'd stay in the bag.

Baggers are automatons and putting things in bags is what they do!

I once did a survey on Facebook of my friends (I have them all over the US, so it seemed like a way to get a sample for my own curiosity's sake). When I lived in the south, I always got my milk bagged, but then I noticed up here in the midwest they didn't. In some regions (I forget where) they ask you.

Me, I get it bagged, primarily because my ten year old car, which my child rides in, isn't exactly the cleanest. I'd rather not end up with cookie crumbs stuck to my cold milk jug :-/ Also, it makes it easier for me to carry. Since I use plastic bags for all sorts of things around the house, like trash bags, or as bags for when I shop at Aldi (where you have to bring your own bags), it works out.

For some reason, people occasionally WANT their gallon of milk bagged, and get all mad when you don't do it. Even though it's got that awesome handle ... and the bag is going to break anyway. Idfgi.

As a grocery store cashier/bagger, the most common reason I've found is when elderly people buy milk they want them bagged because it's easier to carry them since they're heavy. The other common reason is because it's easier to get it to and from the car. I was specifically taught to not bag things with handles (that can fit into a bag) unless the customer asks.

I worked at a drugstore as a teenager and a lot of customers wanted their milk in a bag
