minor rant with apols to Rantz

Spent part of yesterday in bank queue. Annoyed at brutish, bad-mannered behaviour of another customer ahead of me at the counter.
Yes, some people probably need have their cell phones surgically removed because they are so addicted. It's bad enough having their incessant, nerve-jangling ring-tones shattering one's thoughts,and blasting thro' one's consciousness. Worse by far is the adjunct rude behaviour this entails. Customer with phone welded to their ear, conversing at the counter; treating the bank clerk like an atm!

For months on end,£££££s have been frittered away on ad campaign by the Govt warning against the spread of flu germs. Obviously a waste of time, money and effort. Came across mother and young lad, latter obviously, full of cold germs. From the look of him, mother had probably kept him off school! Not only was she allowing him to handle everything within reach in the store, she let him cough and sneeze over the goods he was handling!

I have noticed that several businesses have resorted to signs admonishing customers to finish conversations before attempting to conduct business.

When I worked as a cashier at Arby's restaurant, I had a customer tell me to hold on while they answered their phone. Very rude to me and the long line of customers behind her waiting to give their order.

ARGH!!

I can't stand the rudeness of people with mobile phones, I've stopped using one and you know what - I LOVE it!

As for the woman with the sick child, she would've been better off staying at home, rather than let him spread the germs for everyone else!
