Hang up the phone.
Peeve Meister here.
It makes me nuts when people are talking on the cell phone while they are in line paying at a store checkout.
Worse, did you ever notice that they don't really ever have anything important to say to the person on the other end?
It's always the people that are talking on the phones that are the people we all have to wait for -- because they are not quite ready to pay or they have to find their money or card. How rude.
Why can't people who are talking just set the phone down just for a few moments or call back? It will make things go easier and make the lines go faster.
I'm sure you've seen this. You might even be guilty of doing it yourself (No way!). What public display of rudeness (PDR) have you witnessed lately?
Happy 4th of July.

P.S. I'm sorry to report that there was no winner from last week's Rant-of-the-Week contest. The response was deemed to be rather lame (maybe the rant was lame?). Anyway, good luck to all this week!
