A pet peeve: I get special orders in a couple times a week and I have to call each person to let them know their item is here. That's not the pet peeve. The PP is in-store customers walking up to the counter to buy stuff or ask questions, just as I'm dialing. They see me on the phone and walk up anyway, slap their CD on the counter, and proceed to wait two feet away while I leave my message. They aren't hearing anything much except "Hi Broomhilda, your movie is here at the music counter and you can pick it up at your convenience." Still, it makes me self-conscious and annoys the hell out of me. Am I crazy to wish they'd wait until I hang up? Maybe I am...
