I have very little patience for people who will not end a phone conversation in order to transact business at a store, a bank, or a restaurant. I have been known, on occasion, to crank the store's music up to an irritating volume just because I know it will hinder their ability to carry on a phone conversation that has become aggravatingly loud. I have also been known to stand near a "constant phoner" and yell out inventory numbers to the person at the register; hey, I can't help it if our need to do business interferes with their important phone call!
Apparently, I'm not the only one aggravated by this as is evidenced by the 2/16/07 installment of Stephen Pastis's Pearls Before Swine.
