I agree with the woman who wrote about in Susie's Deals, that they chat with each other and turn their backs on the customer and take a long time ringing up the items.
I think that's so rude! A week ago I went to the store to buy my year-old niece a dress and I saw a pretty dress that I wanted for her. I asked a young lady if she could bring it down for me and she said hold on a second and she was chatting with her friend. Five minutes passed and I asked her again and she said "I told you to hold on. Can't you see that I'm chatting with someone."
I felt like telling her something but I kept it to myself. Then she gave me the dress in a bad way.
