Cell Phone Rudeness

Cell Phone Rant: Unplugging Etiquette

This post comes to us from Elfyn, who let it all hang out in our Cell Phone Rant group:

I own a mail and parcel shipping store in Southern California. A customer comes in wanting to make a copy, but the copier doesn't seem to be working. I go to help him and find my copier unplugged and a mysterious charger plugged in in its place. Note, the person who plugged in their charger had to physically move the copier to get to the electrical outlet. I follow the cord to a customer standing near the front of my store yakking away on his cell phone. When I try to ask him about it he holds up his finger to have me wait while he finishes his conversation. After he finishes his phone call, I ask him why he unplugged my copier to plug in his charger. He said, "Oh I didn't know that was your copier." Really? You just walk into a business and unplug their equipment to plug in your charger without even asking?

That is incredibly rude.

Who does that? I would have unplugged his phone charger and thrown it in the garbage and made the jerk go digging for it. Or even better given the thing a good yank and pulled the phone out of his hand and chucked both in the garbage.

That seems utterly ridiculous! I have plugged my cell phone in at airports and other random places but never unplugged something! Sorry that person clearly has no manners!

Oh wow, that's mighty annoying. And very, very rude. I hope you have less customers like him! Or maybe none like him, ever!
