The Cell Phone Rant Group is there so you can vent about someone who infuriated you by being on his or her cell phone at an inappropriate time, because rarely do we have the wherewithal to go, "Hey! What you're doing is rude!"
Well today, TeamSugar user kaylamom2000 is my hero, because that's what she did. She spilled her guts in the Rant Group about a day where she was working a drive-thru, and a customer who was driving through refused to get off of his phone.
Kaylamom2000 says that when the customer pulled up to pay, "He had the nerve to hold up his hand and tell me 'Just a minute'! He continued to talk. My manager came to the window and he did the same thing with her."
To see how kaylamom2000 handled this Chatty Cathy and became my idol, just
"After three minutes of different people trying to get his attention, including the district manager . . . I yelled at the top of my lungs out the window: 'Excuse me if we interrupted your convo, but you are interrupting our workday on your damn cell phone!"
Ha, you know, you probably wouldn't normally get away with yelling at a customer if you weren't standing there with your manager and district manager, but I think that guy learned a valuable lesson about wasting other people's time.
Has anyone else ever told a cell phone offender how their rudeness made them feel? Also, for other great cell phone rants, please join the Cell Phone Rant Group and vent to your heart's content — you might end up on the geeksugar home page!
