Is there a right and wrong way to be a customer?

When I worked in retail, I had a lot of coworkers complain about some of the things customers do. For example, paying in too many coins or using their cellphone at the register. While some of their arguments were indeed valid, sometimes I felt as if maybe we were getting TOO worked up or TOO sensitive over the habits of people who come in and out of our lives in mere minutes every day.

Do you think there should be a customer code of ethics, or should customers be able to do what they want - so long as it's legal, of course?

Are there things we can ALL agree are rude to do when interacting with a retail employee?

Personally I realize how rude people can be because I've worked retail for a little bit and I think they need to lighten up a little and realize just because they're the customer doesn't mean they're always right. But even before then I understood how tough it can be and try to be as polite as I can with employees

I think that people should treat each other with respect, compassion. and understanding no matter which side of the counter you are on. I think of it this way, how would you think of/treat that person if you met them at a gathering? Would you be so quick to judge?
