How restrained are you when someone cuts in line right in front of you. Do you

    How restrained are you when someone cuts in line right in front of  you.  Do you take any action?

    I don't suppose sighing (loudly) counts as taking action?  I sometimes make comments about people who obviously flunked kindergarten too, but not generally till after they are gone and can't hear me. I'm a wimp...

    Yes, I tell them to get to the back of the queue where they belong.

    This really annoys me, I will say something so they hear me but I will not go out of my way to have an argument or anything like that. I am more likely to let it go smile

    These days, I think of the following poem, by W. H. Davies, and be thankful:

    W. H. Davies
    Leisure
    What is this life if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare?—
    No time to stand beneath the boughs,
    And stare as long as sheep and cows:
    No time to see, when woods we pass,
    Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:
    No time to see, in broad daylight,
    Streams full of stars, like skies at night:
    No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
    And watch her feet, how they can dance:
    No time to wait till her mouth can
    Enrich that smile her eyes began?
    A poor life this if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare.

    I let them have my blessing and find out if I can help them.  Someone cutting in front of me doesn't really happen.

    I agree with Sarah Masson. I will usually not say anything. I guess my philosophy is that we must make allowances for the socially malfunctioning.
