It's time to put this out on Topix so that business owners get tough with their employees on this issue. I am tired of going into area businesses and being put on hold because an employee is more concerned responding to a text, than attending to the needs of a customer. Where are the worst places for texting employees?

Is your last name Miggs by any chance??? Weren't you in that basement cell next to Hannibal Lecter's in that nuthouse in Baltimore before he somehow made you swallow your own tongue?? Didn't you say almost the same thing to Clarice Starling as she was walking past your cell on her way to speak to Lecter?? I was under the impression that you had died from swallowing your tongue but I guess that is not the case at all, is it?? Just a big cover-up and here you are now in Herkimer, NY, released from psychiatric custody and at large in our quiet community, free to spew Tourette's-induced obscenities to the victim du jour at your involuntary, uncontrollable whim. I shall hunt you down, Mr.Miggs, and extinguish all of your vital functions, liberating the Mohawk Valley from the grip of your foul mouth and vile intent. MARK MY WORDS.

They might even be business texts. Perhaps even with a supervisor.

Lowes and Home Depot are two places where employees text. They can disappear out of sight and text away. Not too long ago I was at the Herkimer Lowes and needed some help in the Garden area. The high school age employee was texting when I approached him with a question. He told me to "hold on, I have to finish this text" ! He did grace me with his attention to tell me where the item was located. In the middle of the 30 second exchange with me, he received another text and walked away from me.
I found the supervisor for the department to file a complaint. When arriving home, there was a message from the store manager apologizing and informing me that this person had been fired.
Sorry all you people who text - nothing is that important. People managed quite well to communicate even before cell phones. Get over yourselves.

This has got to be one of the most ridiculous topix posts I have seen. What business is it of yours who is texting....don't like it, leave that business and go elsewhere or bring it to the attention of the employer and let him/her deal with it. Bringing it up on Topix is not going to solve anything. I happen to text at work, play on the computer and read books, but it's nobody's business but mine and my employer's.

The employee got himself fired. It sucks, but these young ones need to learn to put their phones away and do the work they are being paid to perform.

Both students and teachers text constantly in school. What do you think about that? Is it necessary?
