Here are 5 things you should know.
1. If you’re used to getting a deal from a place from a couple of employees, that doesn’t mean you are entitled to said deal from everyone. And by saying you are used to getting said deal to a manager, you are screwing over the employees who have been hooking you up.
And you won’t get your deal from those employees anymore, and you could very well be jeopardizing their employment there, so just keep your mouth shut and be happy with what you get.
2. If you’re in a grocery store and you place a refrigerated item in a non-refrigerated section of the store, it will have to be thrown out.
Please, at least put it in a fridge even if it’s not the same section.
3. Sometimes when we tell people, especially children, to just “be themselves,” we are mistaking a request for help with social skills for a self-esteem problem.
Let me start by saying that of course self-esteem problems and poor social skills can coexist. But social skills are just that, they’re skills. They need to be learned and practiced. Kids don’t all learn at the same rate, and it can be hard for them to clearly express the nature of the interpersonal problems they’re having. Heck, adults struggle with that. My point is that sometimes when kids are struggling socially, they may need some coaching in their social skills in addition to a pep talk.
4. If you see corn for sale and the ends of it are red/pink don’t buy it. The corn will taste really sour and that is mold.
5. It is illegal for companies to prevent or prohibit you from talking about your pay and working conditions with coworkers.
It’s common practice, but not legal in any sense, even if they have company policies. Also not legal to fire you for doing it.
