I like Soulseek, it's allowed me to steal a lot of music off Zsinj...

...Even though I had to convert most of it from his crazy communist m4a format...

I used to work at a fast food place, so I can sympathize with the employees to a certain extent. Buut... when I walk into a Taco Bell, order $16 and change worth of food, and the cashier still asks me if it's "for here or to go?" Yeah, it's for here. I'm interested in seeing how much of your food I can actually shovel down before my intestines revolt and strangle me. Here's your sign.

1) You might have been meeting someone; the cashier would do better not to assume your situation
2) Being a cashier turns you into a robot. I'd ask if people wanted butter on their popcorn and then ask again 10 seconds later because the first time I asked was more automatic than an actual question

Mmm, tacos in a fresh cotten tube. I can almost taste 'em.

The trick to being a good cashier is not to let it stifle your individuality. If you're generally pleasant to people and pass the time of day, they'll come back to you. And tip too on occasion.

Who on earth would aspire to being a good cashier? Take the money, give them their food, collect your paycheck. Surely.

You don't tip cashiers. It's just. Not. Done.

Unless of course the cashier is more than just a cashier. Like if they work at Baskin Robbins and they've just made you a fifty dollar cake.

I know my sister's got tips at both Burger King and Starbucks...

I'll only VERY rarely tip a cashier... and then it's only if I've been going to that place for a long time and they get to know me... (like the bakery and Subway near work)

Or, unless they're hot, and maybe you're trying to pick them up.

That's how I managed to get tips, I worked at Safeway, just doing my thing, and at Christmas I'd get various people who I served regularly giving me £10 notes. Which was nice.

My paper round was far more lucrative as was the charity collection I once did. £50 I made in one evening a few Christmases back. I felt no guilt for taking these gratuities 'cause I did the collection for no money and was round regardless of the weather. It sucked to be honest, but I kept fit from cycling up all the hills round here.

True, we didn't get tips very often, but when we did we'd surely take notice. I think the most we ever got was like freakin' $20 or something. We used it to buy dinner.

Oh, fuck. I thought tipping cashiers was one of those things that was considered rude and patronizing. Shit! I could've tipped that cute Arby's chick that was always so friendly and made me laugh on my lunch breaks!

I usually tip at local resturaunts, even when there's not full service (like the Cajun resturaunt, the BBQ joint, and the weird place where I can get curry wraps or buffalo fajitas.) I rarely tip at fast food chains, though.

People would just be like "where's your tip jar" and we'd be like "we don't technically take tips but uh we wouldn't object if you just forgot some money on the counter"

You could have asked her out?

I only tip servers at restaurants, and my barber if the cut is good. Everyone else is merely doing their job, and would only garner a tip if they somehow did something amazingly better then I have every experienced. Yet, usually working at a cashier is done just the same as everyone else... hell, even I worked at one.
