Yea I would have said something. Even if I didn't say anything, I would have demanded some kind of compensation or some kind of disciplinary action for the receptionist for not doing her job and probably lurking Facebook. It drives me crazy when I see their cellphones out next to their paperwork.

What kind of compensation do you want? Canadian healthcare is free. So you will take what your government gives you, and you will like it. And any more bitching from you, and the IRS will audit your taxes. There's your compensation.

No, but it drives me crazy when they are at work especially as a receptionist. They are supposed to be doing their job and creating a professional work environment, not texting. So before you call me a tool, which by the way makes you sound like a tool, read more carefully. BTW, I have 2 computers that I built myself, a laptop, Every videogame console since the NES, a kickass surround sound system for my appartment (that's right I live on my own), and I'm posting this from an iPhone. I'm hardly afraid of technology. I AM HOWEVER angered by how rude people can be today.

Eeew you have an iPhone :p I agree though. We're not allowed mobile phones at work because some staff ignore waiting customers to take a phone call. You're there to work not chat to your mates.

141: so listing off every electronic device that you own somehow clears you from the "tool" list? hmm, makes me wonder. i better get to the store -- i owe you one! |the kid|

That's hardly every electronic I own, I can also list my fridge, microwave, TV, and a lot more. He said I was afraid of technology and that's not just limited to electronics. My van is technology. It was simply a list to prove a point.

So you expect receptionists to just sit there and stare out into the waiting area when not answering the phone, hands in lap, waiting to respond in a milisecond if you require the tiniest thing? I'm definitely not saying the treatment the OP got was at all acceptable, but you come off like a giant douche about jobs you know nothing about. Do you think working as a gas station cashier is like Clerks, too? :/

Although you made a valid point you did make yourself look like a total tool.. 'OOO, look at me I built a PC and everything!!!' It's not hard to build a PC if you have a functioning brain.
