Hiding behind your phone

As she approaches the cash register with a full cart, she is just-short-of yelling into her phone.  I TOLD HIM I WOULD NOT RESPOND TO HIS TEXTS ANYMORE.  HE IS ALWAYS TEXTING ME BUT HE WON’T TALK TO ME.  WHY CAN’T HE PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL ME LIKE A NORMAL PERSON?   HE IS HIDING BEHIND HIS PHONE!!

This loud, frustrated monologue went on as the cashier scanned and bagged dozens of items.  Four bags into the shopping cart, the credit card already swiped and signed, the receipt printing out, she says into the phone, finally, I GOTTA GO.  I’M CHECKING OUT AT THE STORE.  The cashier hands her the slip and says Thank You!  The lady wheels out her cart of groceries, oblivious.  Exactly who was it that was hiding behind their phone?
