Our social dilemma today comes from an email I received.
Hi Jaime--My name is Sarah, and I just have a quick question for your social dilemma. I don't think I did anything wrong, but there have been several people that disagree with me so I thought I would bring it to you The other night I was checking out at the grocery store, and I was on the phone with my husband. I stayed on the phone throughout the entire transaction. It may have slowed me down a little bit, but overall, I went through the line and paid my bill. But I was getting all kinds of huff and puffs from people behind me. I even heard the woman behind me apologize to the cashier for my behavior. When I got home, I asked my husband and he said it was a bit rude. I still don't think so. But I thought I would bring it to you to ask during your social dilemma. So please let me know, do you think it's rude to be on the phone when you're checking out at the store? Thanks much Sarah
Well, if you're asking me personally Sarah, I say yes, it is. You're having a transaction with the cashier and I think you owe him or her your attention. But that's just my opinion. What do you think. Please let me know!
