    I never care about those people. Sometimes it's up to us to enforce politeness on the whole group.

    I am reminded of an older woman at a grocery store in Frederick years ago who set the young man in line behind her straight. She was paying by check or something and he was getting impatient. He kind of huffed and she turned to him and said, "Wait your turn." He said, "It IS my turn." And she said, "No. When I am finished, THEN it's your turn."

    People that pull up to the island that has both diesel and gas pumps when there are other "gas only" islands open. Of course they pump, then run in to buy something and leave their vehicle blocking the diesel pump.

    So a few minutes later I'm over in the coffee aisle, back to back with a woman who's looking at something across the aisle, and this same woman! rolls up on us and without saying excuse me or anything squeezes right in between us and starts looking at coffee too. Seriously, it was a terrible lady sandwich. The other woman and I turned at the same time and said, "Excuse me??" and the space invader backed off. But I was like, WTH?? Who does that?

    She was a fluffy little Stepford thing, clearly not raised by wolves, so what's up with that?

    I'm sitting here saying that the SAMETHING happens to me, too! It's like I'm magnet for these people! Foxhound says this never happens to him. !

    A magnet, I tell you.

    Going to stores, banks, driving, etc. where I have to deal with people invading my space, being rude, being on cellphones, being oblivious to others are where I learned patience and tolerance, which, also, keeps my blood pressure low!

    I will not use those self-checkouts even if I have one item that will total a one dollar bill. If the store is not going to give me an extra discount for doing their job, of say 5-10%, what's the point? So the chain (corporation) can reduce its workforce? I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for the privilege of scanning and bagging my own purchase while at the same time increasing unemployment. They really have trained their customers, well. Suckers.

    Packed house at the Target the other day. Sitting in the "10 items of less" line about 8 people deep. Dude right in front of me begins to unload his CART.... yes... CART of about 25 items onto the belt. Me and the 5 people behind us sigh at the same time!

    The nice teenage cashier then announces, rather loudly... "I'm sorry sir, this is the 10 items or less line and you will need to go to one of the other lines!" She skillfully waited until ALL of the items were on the belt.

    The dude then begins to give her the business!

    She stood her ground though! The guy threw his items into his cart and stormed off to wait 10 people deep at another line.

    I heard what I can only describe as a slight chuckle from many of the people behind me.

    Why are people so rude??
    Agree
    They would get irate (if you bagged their stuff)
    Frankly, because they can be. Self absorbed, twits. It's how they drive, how they behave in restaurants and generally how they are. It's all about them. Level of income, education, race, it doesn't matter.
    They would rush you out of the way, but heaven forbid they get a nudge because they're on "a call" in the checkout line.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?
