    In this day in age you have to assert yourself alot because this is a commonplace occurance with these types.

    I would say something, but I usually don't allow space for someone to cut in...if the person is with the individual in front of me...he/she will have to ask me allow the space to get by...

    I'm the ***** who will say something to line-cutters......if you're going to be bold enough to me or mine disrespectfully, I'll be bold enough to point it out to you.

    I'd just let him politely know what he did and let him decide whether he wants to be obnoxious about it or not. I think a lot of people just walk around in condition white, bumpng into each other like pool balls. If I bring it to his attention and he ignores me, at least there is no doubt he is a jerk. I leave it at that. If I feel that injusticed when I haven't lost anything more than a few seconds time, it's usually my big ego acting up. I had a freind almost get into a fist fight over this very thing and I asked him not to do that around me again because I carry a firearm.

    I usually do not say anything but, just get them into a strangulation choke hold, crush the wind pipe...snap the Hyoid bone...and whatever their intended purchase was I attempt to cram it down their throat but, only after their Oxygen supply has been completely cut off and they begin to go limp like an old wet dish rag.

    Thanks all, I still wish I'd a said something, but after some time to think about it, not a big deal. I leave a certain amount of personal space around folks when in lines.
    I did get right behind him on the way to the car, I was pushing a basket so he could hear me. He did seem lost, couldn't find his car, I loaded up and left.

    Well, there you go. I have no idea what age he is but maybe really did not realize what he was doing... could have been medicated one way or another.

    i had something similar happen to me at a amusement park yesterday in the food line, ever since taking the CCP class, i notice i now try to avoid anything that could result in a confrontation, since then from my understanding i would be considered the instigator.

    Not a geezer, walked OK, don't think he said anything to the cashier, certainly not to me, such as excuse me, as if that would help. He just walked past me and set his purchase on the counter.

    In todays day and age you never know what kinda psycho you may be dealing with,the guy could be a jerk or on meds,I would probably say ,excuse me I was in line and if he didn't move tell the cashier to tell the guy she ain't ringing him up til he gets in line

    I wouldn't have said anything. I'm to laid back. The 90 seconds I lose really is not that important

    Sometimes I really feel like giving those folks what they deserve, but given the current state of our legal system, it's usually not worth getting silver bracelets over.
