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.
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.
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? :/
