This has got to be one of my BIGGEST pet peeves! As nice as someone may be that does not excuse them from ignorance. When you walk into an establishment that involves positive customer service on their part, RETURN THE FUCKING FAVOR! Get off your phone BEFORE walking in and put it on silent. Don't walk in chatting away having someone sit there waiting on you to get done. Better yet why in the HELL would you answer it in mid-conversation. Let it go to voice mail!
Excusing yourself doesn't work either. There is NO excuse. Having your ring tone volume on the highest it will go isn't necessary either. Are ya freakin deaf? Need to make sure you hear it so you can run after it? You miss it so what! Call them back! If it's real important THEY will call back! I now have to try and find some tactic to excuse people away from my office politely until they are done bullshitting on their cell phone.
Now this one is most aggravating. If I do not answer your call or text right away. I AM BUSY! It doesn't matter what I am busy with, that is NOT your business. If I do not want to text or talk I should not feel obligated to, so that you don't think I am some kind of a-hole. Your insecurities should not be my problem. 9 times out of 10 if you are feeling that you offended me or are bugging me you probably are. LEAVE IT! I will get back to you as soon as I can. I do have a life you know. I am sorry that you are not priority in it. My only priorities right now are my children and my job. By the way have I mentioned that I HATE TO FUCKING TEXTING!!
Driving here is a big one! I wish that UTAH would pass the law like California with a stiff fine if you are pulled over for driving and texting/calling. You drive worse then a 90 year old lady that can't see over the steering wheel!! Do you realize the heavy equpiment, the massive weapon you are rolling around in? This one should be treated just as serious as drinking and driving. There are options to be hands free talking! Let them call you back, let your voicemail pick it up, blue tooth ear piece, run through the speakers in your vehicle. There are more important things happening on the road then to worry about what someone needs to tell you. If it is that important pull off the road for gods sakes.
