Not About Food 29

Food Service Staff Texting

Is it just me?? I stopped at a local take out restaurant today and I had to just walk out. The person handling the food was standing there texting, then packaging the cooked food. I was completely grossed out. Phones are dirty. People continually touch them and hold them near their mouth and I doubt most people wipe them down very often (I know I don't). I realize that many restaurants have policies against this but it doesn't seem to be a hard and fast rule. Am I just being a germi-phobe or is it disgusting?
