Following me into the store was a short, thin, saccharine blonde carrying on a short, thin saccharine conversation on her cellphone.
I had stopped to use the ATM so she was ahead of me in check-out line. She never spoke a word to the clerk but continued her conversation throughout the entire transaction. She then asked another employee where the bathroom was (I guess she was going to use the gum as a suppository?) but was still on the same call when she walked back to the restrooms.
I was going to break my rule of "never talk to anyone, anyone, anyone" and mention how rude it was that the woman never got off the DogGamn phone long enough to acknowledge the clerk while carrying on the briefest human interaction. The reason I did not break my rule is that the clerk was talking on HIS cellphone the entire time during the transaction with me. And in a foreign language.
