We were in line at the store the other day. Think we were third. The line curved behind me to my right. Very clearly, three more people were behind me.
A woman came up and sort of tried to step between my cart and the fellow in front of me. I casually pushed my cart up a smidge. She glared and stepped behind me. The person behind me coughed.
"Oh, is that the line?" she asked.
Everyone nodded and she looked as if she were about to move but instead shouted directly in my ear, "CAN YOU CALL UP ANOTHER CASHIER FOR CHRISSAKE!!??"
The cashier made a call and another cashier came and said, "I'll take who ever is next."
The person behind the impatient lady stepped into that line and the rest of the line followed her, cutting off the loud mouth.
Another cashier came. I saw her coming and made a bee line for her register and got there about an inch before the loud mouth.
She huffed. I unloaded my cart extremely slowly.
The loud mouth mumbled under her breath and then said loudly, "It's about time!"
The cashier looked alarmed so I said, "No worries. I was only waiting about two minutes and this loud woman was in line for less than ten seconds. Take your time."
The loud one got into another lane. The person who got in line behind me got out before the loud one.
My ear hurt for another hour, though.
