However, the other day I was at the grocery store, and an older woman had half of her cart full. I watched as the man behind her asked if he could cut in line because he only had one item. She obliged.
Although I could kind of see the logic in asking, I still felt that the man was being rude.
I mean, really. Is this a thing? What gives someone the right to cut ahead of everyone else? Although the-would-be-cutters may have less items, that doesn't mean that they deserve special treatment. They're at the store just like everyone else. There are exceptions, of course, but as a general rule, this behavior is rude. Most people if asked to do a favor will oblige like the woman I saw the other day, but I prefer the Larry David-model of living and saying "No, wait in line, buddy!"
What would you do if someone asked you if they could cut you in line? What would you do if someone asked to cut the person in front of you, causing you to wait? Let me know in the comments below or on Facebook or Twitter.
