    ...run into a convenience store with your phone still playing music on internal speaker muffled in your pocket?

    Was it a phone made by Alcatel? :troll:

    Jokes apart, yes, it is rude.

    No, it was an iPhone. Apparently it bothered the guy behind the counter enough to say something. I have to listen to their shitty one channel satellite music, mine is better. :lol:

    Guess it was his first iPhone, so he was showing off. You should have told him, he was being iAnnoying. :lol:

    No showing off, it was stuffed deep in a pocket. If you want to be iNnoying then play with your phone while making a transaction.

    The thing was, he didn't even know what direction the sound was coming from. If you have to ask, don't mention it I would say. How many annoying customers does he get a day? It is ruder to say something about it. I remember the days women would carry those transistor radios playing in the shopping carts or wiggas blaring their boom boxes. People forget history. :rolleyes:

    It wasn't any louder than that. It was far less rude than having earphones in trying to make a transaction.

    He looked like some kind of Taliban.

    They are not rude, they are just more important than you.

    This happened to me last month. I heard the comment, "are you going to play on your phone or join the conversation?" DFI was more interesting than what they were talking about and out of courtesy, almost always is. If anyone wants a job I can fire a couple of them so we can talk about DFI stuff at lunch. :laugh:
