1. Your cashier has absolutely nothing to do with the price of the item you’re buying.
That person is an employee of the store who likely rode one or two or three trains from another borough for 40+ minutes to arrive at this bullshit Upper East Side grocery store and ring up some dumb-ass bitch like you. When you’re upset that the Lysol Multi Purpose Cleaner you picked up rang up for $7.89, Michael, the cashier, has absolutely nothing to do with that price.
So when you demand to take it off the total, complaining to him about how ridiculous it is that a household cleaner is more than $6 is not only a waste of your time, but it’s a waste of Michael’s time as well as mine and the six people behind me.
2. The price of every item in the store is listed on the shelf beneath the item. I know that’s a tricky concept, but if you do it once, it’s like riding a bike.
"Hmm, I’d like to try this new honey mustard. I hope it falls within my budget."
Pro tip: You can find out how much this honey mustard costs by looking at the price listed beneath it. Then, just keep doing that every time you would like to know the price of something.
These tips and more can be found in the common sense section of your brain.

Subway etiquette #3
Situation: A train pulls into the station. It is packed except for one car, which is curiously empty. Do not board the empty car. It is empty because something truly terrible has happened there.
"YOU ARE A WEAK MAN. I CAN SEE IT."
Stressed? Anxious? I was. Until I watched this and laughed until I cried [and had a really, really, really good time].
…If the greatest adversity you face is some nitwit asking if you’re planning to work at Starbucks for the rest of your life because you majored in English, kindly remind him that Starbucks has great benefits and really great lattes. And then throw one in his face. Just kidding, tell him your mom works there with a confused look on your face. Kidding again; tell him you’re not worried about money because you’ve got something on the side and then wink at him. Kidding! Ask him if he’s happy slinging insurance. Sorry! I’m done.
Look… You are never going to make everyone happy with your decisions, but that’s why they’re called your decisions – they’re only supposed to make you happy.
Now go be nice to your local barista because some people actually do work at Starbucks and most of them are pretty nice. And by nice I mean hot.❞
