How to answer behavioral questions in an interview with no prior work experience?

I have an upcoming interview and wanted to know what subjects I could relate these questions to if I have never had a boss or a difficult employee. I have completed multiple community service projects, which is what I plan to lead to for most questions. Should I say, "Well, if I was in that situation, I would do this..."?

You can say, "While I've never had to deal with a difficult employee, I did have to deal with X (difficult team member/similar situation). However, if I WERE to deal with a difficult employee, this is what I would do." :)

I work as a cashier at a retail store. My shifts are usually between 5 and 7 hours long. I usually find myself just standing there with nothing to do and nobody to talk to. I wanted to know from other cashiers what they do to make the time go by a little faster. I usually come home with my feet and back hurting and i am relieved when i get to leave, but i want to learn how to enjoy my job until I leave in about a year for college. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks!
