Re: creepy encounters with cashiers
Again, the customer is not there to be friendly to the cashier.
The customer is there to make a purchase. Talking on a cellphone during that purchase and/or being rude to the cashier can make it more difficult to complete it. Therefore, it stands to reason that the talking should be kept to a minimum.
