Re: creepy encounters with cashiers

I'm all for general politeness, and I would certainly never be rude to somebody, I just don't like it when I am expected to act a certain way just so somebody doesn't take offense at me, which is how I see this issue.

As a matter of practicality, I wouldn't take a phone call at a checkout, but if somebody can do it without causing a delay, they can go right ahead as far as I am concerned. And yes I have worked as a cashier, although not when mobile phones were ubiquitous, granted.
