Was in the postshop this arvo...chick in front of me answered her cellphone...chatting away...her turn at the counter...she handed over some paperwork to the woman behind the counter...then carried on talking on her cellphone

Woman behind the counter waiting for this chick to say what she wanted...people in line waiting for their turn...didn't sound like an earthshattering, urgent convo from this side...anyway, she finally told the woman what she wanted...then carried on talking.

She said to whoever on the phone..."I'm trying to do 2 things at once here"... I'm standing there thinking...'here's an idea   put ya farkin phone away'  

Dumb and rude

The person running the counter should have just said "Next"

Very rude indeed,

What you could do if you were serving at a counter and that happens is ask the next person in line how you can help them, if the person on the phone takes offence. Just politely say, I'm sorry I thought you must be tied up in an important call and there are lots of people waiting for assistance. Then make sure your hands are below the counter and give her the fingers with one hand and the finger with the other...that should keep you smiling when really you just want to smack the biatch upside the head.  Angel

Cell phones turn a lot of people into inconsiderate c**ts, or brings out their inner inconsiderate c**t, some people think that their stupid conversations are the most important thing in the world

Try having a quiet smoko in a canteen with fifty people who think that their text ringtone is just the coolest thing you'll ever hear........

This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype.

Pamela Stephenson was giving a talk in Dunedin last week.
She told the audience not to worry about turning their cell phones off .....but if they rang she would answer and tell the caller that the person was in the middle of a session with their sex therapist.
People rushed to turn their phones off
