Why should it matter to a cashier whether they are being payed attention to or not if such attention is not actually required to complete the transaction?

Why isn't it considered rude to take somebody away from their personal business when there is no need to?
Then why should it matter to the customer if the assistant doesn't give them their full attention? Customers expect quite rightly that the person assisting them gives them their full attention. It's not unreasonable that the asssitant would expect the same curtesy.
Perhaps you don't understand the concept of being employed to do a job, versus that of being a customer somebody is employed to serve?
They're employed to provide a service, they're not serfs to be taken for granted.
