    (I’m standing at my register. A customer walks up while talking on her cell phone. I smile at her and start ringing up her order.)

    Me: “Would you like a box?”

    (The customer is still talking on cell phone and doesn’t answer. I start packing her order in a box anyway.)

    Me: “That’ll be [total].”

    (She hands me a check, but is still talking on her cell phone. I put it through the check printer for her.)

    Me: “Okay, I just need to write your phone number on the check.”

    Customer: *dead pan, and still on her phone* “I don’t have one.”

    *extended pause*

    Me: “Okay, I’ll just put ‘unlisted’.”
