Like rissierissie said, we have scanner guns, but if you had read any of my other posts, I already explained this. I hold them up so the cashier can scan them.

You shouldn't have had to lift the cases of water, cat litter, dog food, or charcoal because for one, it's awkward to scan such bulky items like those in the small area a cashier has to work with, and two, they don't need to be bagged anyway. (We have signs at our grocery stores to leave the heavy and/or bulky goods in the cart.)
I don't work at a grocery store, but if you add up all the stuff I move from one place to another, it definitely adds up to over a ton. I would wager that is probably the case with most people as well, even the ones with desk jobs (books, files, and paper can be heavy, you know!). It's also the way you lift items. As a cashier, you shift items to the left and place them in sacks, so it's low impact.
Like I said, though, it comes with the job of being a cashier. If you can't handle it, find another job.
