Yeah and I'm a husky 6 foot tall dudebro with a backwards hat.

If I did make a scene guess who would be dubbed the violent bully who was in the wrong?

The headline would read 'privileged white male refuses to give up his spot in line--has violent snowflake meltdown'

They'd lynch me!

To be fair, I've seen crazier stuff on American news reports. A little probation, some community service. Things can be worked out.

.. aaaand, on another tangent
why do old people go shopping at 5, 6 or 7 in the evening ?
They've got all day, but why wait until late on


Don't get it. Why would that be upsetting?

Shop earlier if it bothers you.


No you don’t get it. That’s what they are saying is old retired people have all day, working class go after work.
Wait a minute....how close would you say you stand ehhhh? Haha

Edit- I would have to say my biggest gripe with the ancient ones is when they strike up a little jovial chatting with the cashier. You’ve been waiting in line, dying to get out of there, and they start in with story time while writing a GD check and checking coupons. At that point I want to pay for their crap or make front page news. Who writes checks in 2018!?!? And then they gotta fill out the ledger and....
I gotta stop and fill my glass.....sorry

Nothing more beautiful than an empty Meijer at 4 in the morning
Except we always manage to be in the floor waxer's way every damn time, no matter which Meijer we go to or when. It's like some witchcrafty conspiracy or something

Almost beat the hell out of a guy at a McDonalds at the drink fountain because he was wayyyyyy tooooo close behind me, we're talkin a few inches. The PTS almost generated a elbow to his face, I had to seriously catch myself. OP has a point! personal space peoples....

Relate to this much lmao

Like they are trying to bite your neck or what, always getting so close

And just today i was at a 7-11 in line waiting to pay and a guy goes through the line to get some stuff and instead of going around the line he almost forces me out of it to go through. WTF dude, you can always go around it why almost step on my face to go through it just to save a couple steps? Or maybe he was a creep who knows but i even had to check i still had all my stuff and money on me after he went by lol

Some people are just very lame in terms of respecting other people's spaces, i don't even know why but it's terrible and i wish there was better education about it because sometimes it can really feel like they are trying to do something else like mug you or something, how can they know notice this?

You should come to England, we are famous for our queueing etiquette.

Fair point. I always do my shopping first thing in the morning. Best time. One of the advantages of being a night worker.


I would have to say my biggest gripe with the ancient ones is when they strike up a little jovial chatting with the cashier.


Yes, that is irksome. But I find men in their 30s/40s the worst offenders. Sort of 'everybody thinks I'm cool and this is the evidence' type of thing. I head straight for the self-service section.

On the opposite end, also when queued up please do not stand 20 meters away from the person in front of you or the counter or whatever we're queued up for, it's annoying to wonder are you in the queue? as well as then have gaps so large you get people walking in among you as the queue unnecessarily extends about 200m further than it should into the path of foot traffic.

Personal space. All you're entitled to is how far your arms extends. Want to know if someone is too close? Yawn and stretch, if they're too close say sorry for just smacking them in the mouth "accidentally".

I've "accidentally" elbowed a few people reaching for my wallet. Got a feeling they didn't get so close to the next person they lined up behind.
'oh sorry, I wasn't expecting someone to be that close to me..... my bad'.


Generally though I just man up and say, 'um excuse me would you mind backing up a bit there?' just as I happily direct people to the end of the queue when they seem lost and think the end is at the front of the line.

Then again making an anonymous post online they probably will never see works too I guess......

Then there's the 'Inchers', the 'Bumpers' and the 'Elbowers'

You're in a queue of, i dunno, let's say 6 or 7 shoppers
The 1st is passing though, the 2nd has just put his goods on the conveyor belt
the rest of us have to patiently wait until the 3rd and 4h customer dumps his stuff..

Why, then, as soon as the first customer starts bagging his stuff,
do the people behind start bunching up inch by inch ?
We ain't going anywhere at least until it's the the guy in front of me's turn !

Then, there's the fool behind,
who keeps ramming your ass (oops, so sorry !) with their trolly
I ain't going anywhere until the guy infront is done, so give it a rest : been said many's a time

The scummage around the fruit and veg section on Saturdays ...
are you soooo desperate to fondle round things, that you have to barge in
straight under my out-stretched arm, all huffy and puffy because i'm in your way !?
"S'cuse me, sorry", "wassup, you in a hurry ...you got a date or summat ?"

The missus hates us doing the weekly shop together
I swear, one of these days, you're gonna get thwacked by a pensionner ... whatcha you gonna do then ?

There y'go ...
some of us (ahem) are a bit snowflakey
when it comes to the weekly shop

And yet i REFUSE the missus's observation
that we could .. y'know ... order on-line ?
be delivered to the door ?
not have to slalom and avoid
quote fingers other people quote fingers
