I work at a sales counter at a service shop. I personally find it easy to talk to people anywhere, but seeing as I work when I do I actually get paid to do it. Where I work everyone is pretty laid back, so I highly doubt either of my bosses would care, but how does it look from the other side of the counter? Is it appropriate to ask for someones number or something like that while you're at work? And that brings me to another point...when I'm writing someone an order at work, the first thing I say is "What's your phone number?" That's how we store all of the info in the computers. With that said...it seems to put me in a weird place considering I technically already have the number I'd be asking for. And I can't really joke about just calling it instead of asking for it because that's super fuckin' creepy. Do I just ask for it like I would anywhere else? Odds are the number they give me for work is a general home number and they would give me a personal cell number for other use. I probably put too much thought in to this. A good looking woman came into work today and got me thinking about it though...we were slow as hell with nothing to do.
