    A Phoned In Service

    | Bastrop, TX, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Rude & Risque, Technology

    (I’m a cashier for a retail store. Normally I’m pretty nice with one main exception: If you are on a phone, I will NOT talk to you. A customer come up to me talking on her phone and I proceed to scan up her items, giving a small smile and a nod to acknowledge her. For the most part the customer doesn’t seem to care until she’s almost done.)

    Customer: “Where’s my corn dog?”

    (She resumes her phone conversation as I put the corn dog on the counter next to the credit reader.)

    Customer: “HEL-LO! Where’s my corn dog?”

    (I silently start to put her items into the buggy while she’s STILL keeps talking on her phone as I point to the corn dog. For the next few moments she attempts to talk to me only to also talk to the phone.)

    Customer: “HELLO! Are you sleepy?! Where is my corn dog!?”

    (I point to it one more time as she pays with a card and takes the corn dog and receipt. As she walks off, another customer walks to the counter without a cell phone and we start to carry a conversation.)

    Next Customer: “Geez, she the only thing she seemed to care about was her corn dog! How do you deal with people like that?”

    Me: “Just like I just did. So, now, how are you?”
