Our social dilemma today comes from an email I received and it's something that makes me crazy so I wanted to bring it up.
Hi Jaime--My name is Bonnie, 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 in the grocery store, and I was on the phone with my husband. I was trying to continue shopping while we talked, so I put the phone on speaker. So yes, I was going up and down the aisles talking on the speaker phone. We weren't talking about anything private so I didn't think it was a big deal I stayed on the phone right up until I got to the cashier. She started checking me out and I hung up about halfway through the process. I did notice that I was getting all kinds of huff and puffs and angry looks from people throughout the store. 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 shopping at the store? Thanks much Bonnie
This is a major pet peeve of mine. I have to admit. And while I don't think anyone is doing this with malice, I generally don't want to hear anyone's conversation while I'm doing my grocery shopping, so I think it's kind of rude. Especially if you continue to do it at the register. I try not to talk on the phone at all when I'm in the store. But that's me. What about you? What do you think. Please let me know on the TRY Facebook page.!
