Please do not form a line ...

Alright, so I want to write about one thing that pushes my patience to the limit.  That being the fact that people do not believe in waiting in line.  If they can push themselves in between two people, they will.   

This happens anywhere here; as you drive, on the cashier line, at the airport....maybe even at the mens room, who knows!?!

It first happened to me at the airport in Mumbai as I was removing my bag and placing it on the belt, when a guy just cuts right in front of me.  WTF?!!?

I was warned later to expect this throughout.  Last night as we were at the hospital (just getting a checkup, nothing major), I saw how it was chaotic at the "front desk."   The nurse would be helping someone, then another person just butts in with their information.  Next thing you know, there are more people just crowding around.  

It recently happened to me at the supermarket.  I was waiting with my items at the checkout when I notice this guy walk behind me and move himself in between me and the person in front.  I raised my voice telling him that I am next. He says "but I only have two items....i can go?"  
Hell the fuck no!!  First you cut me, then you ask if it was ok to cut??  Fuck off!

I just stepped in front of him and told him to wait!  He just stood there for a few, as I took my time placing my items on the counter.  Finally he walked away to another counter. 

There is a great quote that I can relate to: "Beware the fury of a patient man"

Don't push if you don't want to be pushed back......

 

I'll leave you off with one of my favorites from the 90's ...btw:  I am among that insane crowd, about 15 feet from the stage.

I didn't know this side of you sir. Are you consuming too much spicy food out there? Nonetheless, I totally understand your frustration with that rude behavior of some people. I had a few encounters with such people and knowing my temper I have had to just breath easy, after I let them have a piece of my mind of course.

that guy probably stared at the back of your head thinking, "damn these foreigners!"
