Hello everyone, i have some questions i would appreciate if you can help me.
I want start working as cashier in grocery store in Australia but my English is not good enough to communicate with costumers.
I am just looking for some general expression which can help me to do my job better.
1-what is the best way to ask English speaker customers if they like to fill the plastic bag full or not?
2-what is the best way to say to costumer if i fill the bag full, it will break.
3-How can we say that there is a hole in the plastic bag? oh! my plastic bag is ....
4-How would the native costumers say that: please fill the bag as much as possible.
sorry for these silly questions.
I am not sure about the obsession here with filling a bag right up. Shall I bag that? would probably be enough, though Australian speakers may be able to make more natural suggestions, but I expect someone doing the bagging to know how much a bag can take. If you put the bag into a second bag to make it stronger, we say double the bag.
Firstly, please look at the amendments I have made to your post. Remember these rules of written English:

Also look at your use of articles and note the correct spelling of "customers".
As far as your questions go:
1. Do you want me to fill the bag right up?
2. If I put too much in the bag, it might break/split.
3. You shouldn't point out to the customer that there is a hole. If you are packing the goods, just throw the bag away and get a new one.
4. Please put as much as you can in the bag.
