Why You Should Watch 'Stranger Things'

Why You Should Watch 'Stranger Things'

You can really lose yourself in all of the small details, from the clothes to the cord phones.

Released back in July of 2016, "Stranger Things" follows a cast of characters in small town Hawkins, Indiana in the year of 1983. Inspired by a time filled with a fascination for sci-fi and fantasy, "Stranger Things" starts off with a suspenseful and thrilling plot itself. Joyce Byers' son, Will Byers, up and disappears one night after a game of dnd with his friends. The disappearance baffles the small town; a quiet place where the last disappearance occurred decades ago. As local authorities search for answers, both the cops and Will's friends discover there's more to it than just a disappearance. Will's vanishing is paired with secret government experiments, dangerous, supernatural beings, alternate realities, and a girl called Eleven.

The setting grounds the audience in the atmosphere of a small town in the 80s. You can really lose yourself in all of the small details, from the clothes to the cord phones. There's so much dedication into making you really feel like this is the '80s, and this is what would happen if something this strange and terrifying happened back then.

There's also a wide range of characters in the show; you get to see the story of not only Will's mother, but the rest of his family, friends, and their family. You get to empathize with parents, cops, children, and high schoolers. "Stranger Things" really shows how a small moment can impact a whole town, especially when it's something like a disappearance. While Will's vanishing is of the supernatural variety, the reactions and stories of the characters are real.

If you haven't already binge-watched the entire first season of "Stranger Things," the time to do so is now. "Stranger Things" is an addicting thriller that is best watched all in one sitting. The episodes only leave you with more questions and wanting more answers. A plus to waiting to watch the first season until now is that season 2 is releasing on October 27, 2017.

7 Ways To Avoid Pissing Off Your Cashiers

We're nice people until we have to repeat ourselves to our customers.

We have all been to grocery shopping or shopping for clothes. Have you ever felt like you were pissing off your cashier? Maybe you were.

Cashiers get pissed or upset pretty easily. For demanding customers to ignorant ones. They all come and go. There are a few that we like to see. Some of our regulars are our favorites

If you don’t wanna make your cashier mad, don’t do these things.

1. Tell your phone number unless asked.

If a store has a rewards card please either wait till we ask for it already have it out. If you don’t have one in hand wait till we ask for your phone number. Just don’t assume we are ready to hear the number. Because more than likely we are not ready.

2. Don't get mad at us.

We don't make up the rules. We just follow them. Just because it doesn't ring up the way you want it doesn't mean it is actually on sale. It could be a sale from last week we forgot to take down.

3. We don't like explaining ourselves more than once.

If you can't get it the first time why even bother trying to hear it a second time. It's a waste of breath and time. Please listen to what we have to say.

4. Get off your phone.

How would you like it if your cashier was on the phone while ringing up your items? It's bad enough when you don't have your rewards card ready or just fire it out like we are ready. It is also rude and inconsiderate when you are on the phone at checkout.

5. Don't dig your purse or that coupon that for whatever

Some stores have to keep certain IPMS (items per minute) and when you rummage for that stuff you run that little meter up.

6. Don't complain to us about something you previously bought.

Yes, it is typical for customers to complain but we can't do anything about it. The person to complain to is customer service because they know how to fix.

7. Read the sales...

Come on people. How hard is it to read? Yea things can be buy one get one, but read and see if that is true because it could be buy 2 get 1.

Cashiers are really nice people we love all our customers but sometimes the things they do make us upset.
