My worst experience was at my property on Sunshine Coast lady at Petro was real serious about hand sanitizer

Stopped at the gas station after work today. That particular gas station's opted to allow nobody inside and use their night time service pay window.
So, i'm waiting in line standing on my little designated square, there was a dude in front of me at the window. He spent a bunch of time dicking around with lottery tickets, buying them, getting the attendant to check then, buying new ones, this went on for a bit. The attendant was a new guy in training. Lottery dude was being super rude to the guy, ordering him around, just being generally an asshole.
Finally, after about 10 minutes half standing in the pissing rain, lottery Guy's finally finishing up by buying a couple packs of smokes and having another little chit chat, telling the guy how he should have done this or that better.
Suddenly, lottery guy turns around and sees me having the audacity to dare stand in line in the designated spot without leaping out of his way the moment he turned around.
Guy starts losing his #, i'll point out too, just because it seems relevant, dude had no mask, not that I did either, but anyway, he's screaming at me starts telling me to get the # away from him it's covid, he starts coming at me hands up like he's going to come up and shove me, spittle flying everywhere.
I respond something along the lines of, I don't care, you've been dicking around for 10 minutes while I stand in the rain, # off.
Guy I guess has a change of heart about physically pushing me away, makes a wide birth around me while swearing at me some more gets in his truck and just sits glaring at me flipping me off until I finished and left.
The funny thing is, that's the third time i've personally seen something like that at that gas station. Last time this random lady came running up, again no mask, because she seen another lady in line start to move to close to the person in front of her. She just came up and started screaming in that lady's face about social distancing and crap.
The first time there was a guy who felt the need to go up to someone's car window in the parking lot and start screaming at the driver for not wearing a mask while having the window down.
I don't give a crap how scared you are of the 'rona or what the precious all holy government Covid specialists tell you people should be doing.
Nobody has the right to get in someone's face and start screaming at them because said person isn't following whatever stupid rona directives of the week.
This isn't the first time someone's gotten pissy towards me over covid, it's probably the first time i've actually been worried someone might try and fight me or something over it though.
It's really getting hard to stay calm at these assholes though...it really is...

Yeah, That #s always frustrating enough...honestly it was hard not to hit the dude just for the way he was talking to the poor guy working there. Kept talking down to him, acting condescending, was sitting there trying to direct him how to use his till...gotta say, the attendant just laughed when I told the other guy to # off. I think he appreciated it. You could tell he was trying as hard as he could to be polite. Gotta commend him for putting up with what I watched before I even got to the window
ETA: All these BC people popping out of the woodwork. There's more of you than I thought.
