that's annoying! but these people aren't even thinking you have any arthritic problem, not even crossing their minds.
are you like at eye level or are you perched more "up" like in a booth or on a chair?
does your employer know? accomodations should be made for your situation, because overstressing a joint can aggrevate RA.
what i'd do?...i would hand them their purchase or change right back at em' at the most inconvenient & awkrward position! ;) LOL
