Is it rude to be standing there jabbering away on your cellphone when it is your turn to check out?
I have been on both sides of the counter and my opinion is YES! Here's why.
You are not the only person in line (most of the time).
The cashier's job is to accurately ring up your purchases and give you your total and make change. Not compete with your phone for your attention to do so.
The cashier cannot always pause the transaction because your friend on the phone needs you to pick something up for them after you have placed your stuff there the be checked out and Is the one who hears the complaints when they must stand there twiddling their thumbs for you to go across the store for your friends item.
You don't have to end your call but setting your phone down and placing your call on hold is a sign of respect.
Am I the only one that things this way?
