Here is my question, how would you have handled this situation? I was at a store and when it was my turn at the register, this female clerks phone rings and she starts gabbing away while I am in line, she has the phone under her chin and she continues to ring in my purchase and she know's damn well I am standing there, and she proceeds to continue talking, all the while she didn't even look at me. Finally she finishes ringing in my purchases and then she tells me the total price and she stick her hand out and holds it there waiting for me to pay her. I paid her and left, I was pissed off, I was going to take the phone from her and hang it up for her, I am paying her salary and I should get some respect. What should I do if this happens again? I doubt telling the manager would have any effect.
