Waiting in line

23 days ago

I don't mind waiting in line most of the time. But my (I think reasonable) expectations are that when there is no line, after a pause to finish whatever they are doing, someone will help me. I was at the local pharmacy recently to pick up a prescription and walked up to the pickup window inside. There were 4 employees talking and laughing together. I waited. And waited. Finally I got a folding chair from the area where they give vaccinations, went back to the pickup area, and made myself comfortable. As soon as I was comfortably sitting one of the four came over to help me. Not a big deal but I think finishing up a conversation is fine but an extended chat while a customer waits should not happen especially when the customer might be ill.
