Im now working as a cashier, and I am amazed at how many people barely pay any attention while I’m scanning their items and accepting payment. Instead, they are on the cell or texting, and moving very slowly in the real world. It makes my job take longer, I often have to ask for payment two or three times, and sometimes I have to ask them to please move when the transaction is finished.
All in all, I don’t understand it. Isn’t it rude to ignore the real world? One person on line refused to start her transaction and, when the person behind her asked her to do so, screamed “You might be in a hurry, but I’m not.” Yes, dear, we are all supposed to stand here and wait while you finished your conversation.
Your views, please?
