After working as a cashier at a sporting goods store for four years during college, I still have retail PTSD from nasty customers, never -ending lines and an endless stream of stress-inducing No matter what store you 're shopping at, please don’t ever say these 11 things to the cashiers you encounter.

Cashiers get asked the same questions over and over. Help yourself make an ally at the store by refraining from asking these questions. The lesson here is to be nice to cashiers . While you ’re at it, don’t say the following things to cashiers . They’ve heard it all before, many times over.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Monday that he has signed into law a bill that will allow college athletes in the state to profit off their name, image and likeness — prompting cheers from activists and consternation from the NCAA.

Newsom signed the "Fair Pay to Play Act" alongside Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James on an episode of James' HBO show "The Shop," describing it as a step toward "re-balancing" the power dynamic in college sports.

But the law will not go into effect until 2023, and there are certainly a lot of questions that still need to be answered between now and then.

Most People Smoke Weed to Relieve Pain or Go to Sleep

Most People Smoke Weed to Relieve Pain or Go to Sleep Marijuana used to have a subversive reputation. But a new study from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the University of Miami found that the majority of people smoke weed for a very boring reason: they just want to get some sleep. 

To ensure that every interaction with your cashier is respectful, we've uncovered the worst things to say to a cashier —and how to avoid saying them. As a former retail employee with years of experience manning a cash register, there's one thing I know for certain: if you want to have a

In the meantime, here's a quick look at what the bill aims to accomplish, and what it means for schools, athletes and the NCAA moving forward.

What does the bill do?

The California bill is not about paying athletes, but rather about clearing an avenue through which athletes can be paid.

Under current NCAA bylaws, college athletes are not allowed to sell the rights to their name, image or likeness to another person or company in an effort to make money. So someone like Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, for example, cannot authorize a T-shirt company to sell shirts with his face on them. Or endorse a brand of shoes or soft drinks. Or team up with a local store to sell Lawrence bobblehead dolls and keychains.

This bill allows all of that, for athletes in California anyway — opening the door for a quarterback at USC or gymnast at UCLA to profit from their star power without necessarily being paid by their schools. It also, notably, allows college athletes to hire agents to help them navigate such deals.

Never accuse a cashier of taking money from your change unless you see it happen. (Did you know that when the first registers came out that pricing was changed from There’s ton’s of things not to say to a cashier , since a cashier is just a person as anyone else but dealing, and working with money.

4. "Are there any coupons I should know about?" If there were, they'd be in an email for people who have previously signed up for them. Cashier : "With the 10% coupon, it's going to be .75."

(You can read the full text of the bill here.)

Why does this matter?

The NCAA has long positioned itself as an organization that oversees amateur sports. So even as coaching contracts have skyrocketed, conference executives have raked in millions of dollars and television contracts have reached eye-popping levels, it has insisted that athletes receiving revenue from outside sources would ruin what it calls "the amateur model."

The NCAA has argued that athletes are fairly compensated for their athletic achievements because they are offered full academic scholarships and cost-of-attendance payments — which are intended to be used for cost-of-living expenses like transportation.

But critics say athletes' earning potential is unfairly limited, regardless of scholarship status. If a talented opera singer or actor at a university can monetize their talents while they're in school, critics argue, why can't a talented basketball or volleyball player?

Are Trader Joe's Cashiers Required to Comment on Your Purchase?

Are Trader Joe's Cashiers Required to Comment on Your Purchase? If you shop at Trader Joe's with any regularity you've probably had a cashier comment on something you were buying. It doesn't happen every time but I'm guessing you've heard "Ohhhh man, I love those" or "I've been meaning to try those" enough times to notice. TJ's is famous for its friendly, smiling, and social employees but perhaps you still wondered if those comments are semi-scripted, or part of some company initiative to make us feel all warm and fuzzy. I mean, it's not every day a stranger breaks eye contact with their tablet or smartphone to offer up real-life human interaction.

“The ad says limit of 9 grapefruits, can I buy 27 of them on three different transactions?” While cashiers understand that customers would like to save as much money as possible on items, it can be rather tedious to separate your order into a million different transactions just so you can save every

This is not to say a cashier ’s job is physically harder than many other forms of labor - but it has its own unique demands on the body. I wish he had just said “people like you can’t even scan things , which is probably the easiest We should never say anything rude to retail store cashiers . They hate that.

How did the NCAA react?

As you could probably guess, given its stance on amateurism, the NCAA was not thrilled by Monday's news.

"Unfortunately, this new law already is creating confusion for current and future student-athletes, coaches, administrators and campuses, and not just in California," the organization said in part of a statement released Monday.

"We will consider next steps in California while our members move forward with ongoing efforts to make adjustments to NCAA name, image and likeness rules that are both realistic in modern society and tied to higher education."

The Pac-12, a Power Five conference with four schools in California, also bemoaned the bill, claiming it will "lead to the professionalization of college sports."

What happens now?

Because the new law will not go into effect until Jan. 1, 2023, expect plenty of public jockeying — and, in all likelihood, legal action — between California and the NCAA over the next few years.

Retail-Based Health Care: What to Know

Retail-Based Health Care: What to Know Since their inception, the number of retail-based clinics has climbed rapidly, about 30% in the last four years. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Some of the popularity of both urgent cares and retail clinics is obvious. First and foremost, there's the convenience factor. Most are open during the evenings and every weekend, making them easy for the working world to get care without missing their job.

So, here's four things you should never say to a retail worker. I wish I was joking, but I actually had someone say this to me during a busy weekend sale, and got offended when I failed to place them.

So don’t ever, ever say these things to customers. 1. The new product will be available September 15. There are far too many variables and conditions outside your control for you to be able to confidently provide the public Can you think of other things product managers should never say to customers?

The NCAA has already threatened to ban California schools from competing for NCAA championships and called the bill "unconstitutional." Meanwhile, one of the bill's authors, Sen. Nancy Skinner, has said that any retaliation from the NCAA would "be a violation of antitrust (law)."

Legal sparring aside, the bill will undoubtedly have short-term impact on recruiting and scheduling. For example: If the early posturing from both sides turns out to be true, someone who commits to play women's basketball at USC this week could one day have the benefit of profiting of her name, image and likeness, but also not be eligible to play in the NCAA tournament.

Another short-term development that will bear watching is the release of a report from an NCAA panel that was appointed to study this issue. That report is expected to be presented at an NCAA board of governors meeting in Atlanta next month.

What about schools in other states?

While the California bill will affect only a fraction of NCAA athletes, it could very well fuel similar efforts in other legislatures across the country. Newsom, in a statement announcing Monday's news, called it "the beginning of a national movement."

Lawmakers in three states — Illinois, New York and South Carolina — have already introduced similar bills, or announced that they plan to do so, while legislative efforts in other states are ongoing.
