It amazes me how people act like manners do not matter when it comes to cell phones. Much too often, they will look at them, tap them, type into them and swipe them off and on, or even continually, while you try to converse with them.
There are other places and ways simple courtesy seems to have broken down. Like a couple of weeks ago at the tire shop. I had some work done. Headed down the road afterward. Realized something wasn't working right and went back to complain/inquire. The young man actually rolled his eyes and looked off to the left when he realized what the subject was! I called him down on it. I said, "Excuse me, but I'm trying to tell you something and you need to look at me when I am speaking to you."
Well, it did get looked at and someone did answer my questions, but it's just an example of the kind of lapse in geniality (and in this case customer service) that Maxine's cartoon brings to mind.
