They've bought into the whole "multitasking" bullshit ....
Oh they can multitask alright. They can talk on their phone and piss two people off at the same time. If that isnít multitasking then I donít know what it is...
Donít worry about what Iím up to. Worry about why you are worried about what Iím up to.

This one?
I wonder if management will allow it...
Thank you SO much.

My google-fu had failed me in this instance. (and my memory was a bit off, it seems.)

I ended up behind one of these charmers in a line in a bank. I didn't want to eavesdrop (not that she was saying anything notable) so I was reading signs in the grocery store attached to the bank when she snapped, "Do you mind? I'm on the phone!" When she got up to the bank teller he told her he couldn't do her transaction unless she hung up the phone, and pointed to a large sign behind him. The bank manager backed him up, so with a put-upon huff (you know the type) she hung up, did her transaction, then immediately called the person back. I was at a different teller, and overheard, "The people in this bank are so rude..." before she passed out of earshot, so I caught the other teller's attention and gave him a thumb's up.

"You may be on the phone but you're also standing in the middle of a public place."

I remember hearing about one incident (not on this site) of a woman who was yakking loudly on her phone on a crowded train. She was a regular and regularly did this. The passenger in front of her turned around on their seat and stared at her.

"Do you mind? This is private!" the woman snapped.

"No, lady, it's not. They can hear you to the end of the car," was the retort. The woman hung up sourly and that was the end of it -- at least for that particular trip.

There is a Pearls Before Swine comic I very much want to find. It is one of the few comics I would pay for a print of.
Rat is at work (at Starbucks?) and a customer comes up on his phone. Rat takes out his phone and calls someone.
"Oh not much, just waiting for some guy to finish his phone call"
(next panel)
"And now he's looking at me like I'm seriously going to take his order after that."
There's a classic Dear Abby or Ann Landers column where someone wrote about a cure for a loud cell phone user. A woman always took the same bus and always made very loud phone calls. One day the guy in the seat in front of her turned around and just stared at her.
Annoyed, she yelled "Do you mind??!! This is a private conversation!"
"Private? Lady, they can hear you in New Jersey."
She got off the phone in a hurry.

[And then, no doubt, everyone clapped and the bus driver got a promotion, but the letter writer forgot to include that part..]
