Miss Information is annoyed by the impatient

Miss Information just got here. She's only been at the Reference desk for 40 minutes. Already she's been interrupted 4 times by people while she's actually talking to other customers. Just because you say "excuse me" before you interrupt, doesn't make this practice any less rude.

Just stand there quietly and wait your damn turn.

I thought I would get away from this when I left the retail world for the library. Nope.

I'm also a huge fan of the "Oh, I know this is rude, but I really have to take this call" cell phone excuse. I refuse to wait on patrons if they're on a phone.

I hear ya! I hate the "excuse me" thing. If someone did that to you while I was helping you, buddy, you'd be super pissed off. Arg, patrons.
