Not Happy Queue Jumpers !!

Standing in the queuing system thing in Boots (The Chemist Flerbs not your thigh highs ) - you know the zig zag fabric barriers and poles thing - and a woman walks in the exit of the till area and straight to the front !!

As I was at the front of the queue I challenged her as to the fact that there were actually people waiting in a proper manner and that she should join the queue like we had !!

With that I received an torrent of abuse

To which she received a Nomes back which really took her by surprise and she looked a bit shocked but...... didn't stop her then still walking forward and putting her stuff on the counter at the till !! (there was only one till open at that time !!)

Another member of staff who'd heard the exchange then came forward and opened another till and served me !!

But what really finished the situation off for me was once the assistant on the first till had served the queue jumping biatch then said to the woman who had been stood behind me "Oh sorry about that !!" and gestured towards me !!

I was more than happy to hear that her retort was "Err I don't think it was this gentleman's fault do you ??"

He looked suitably embarrassed so I spared him another 'Nomes special'

What the :sw: is wrong with people like this queue jumping woman.. why is she so much more important than all the other people waiting in the queue

[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Nomes when I lay my vengeance upon you.

Re: Queue Jumpers !!

I know exactly what you're feeling. You should try a relaxing trip to the Red Sea in Egypt, where you will meet the ultimate queue jumpers. If there's a queue, you can guarantee a russian family will walk straight past it to the front.

Re: Queue Jumpers !!

Yeah, aggrivates the s*** out of me too. Though perhaps not as bad as those muppets waiting in the same queue whom are utterly CLUELESS as to what they're doing there, or what's going on around them. You know.... like those eejits who will be in line for ages at airport security, only to get to the xray machine and hold everything up as they remove their 5984438450938 bottles of liquids stored in their bags...................... - NEVER MIND THE COUNTLESS SIGNS & AIRPORT PERSONELL INFORMING YOU OF SUCH REGULATIONS.

BTW: I'm curious as to what she said in response to you challenging her position in line?

She basically called me a few names ([email protected] was the one that made me start my ) and implied I was a thug for touching her - I tapped her on the shoulder

She didn't dress like a Chav despite acting like one but she did drive a Range Rover which went part of the way to explaining her attitude towards having the right to jump the queue !!

Re: Queue Jumpers !!

Poor manners are to blame but why didny the shop assistant tell her to go and join the back of the que and wait.

maybe a word with the manager and ask him to tell his staff to tell people to join the que.

Re: Queue Jumpers !!

I hate to queue. Saying that being of the old school I will not queue jump. I object to these tape barriers in shops which herd the paying customer for the convenience of the shop. If more tills were open we would reduce the need to queue in shops. In most shops the attitude of staff is a could not careless one, hence I tend to do most of my shopping on line! It is strange how we as a nation are in the main so orderly in forming queues. Is it really just about good manners or are we just so preconditioned to being made to wait for everything?

I believe it's down to good manners !!

It's a shame that there seems to be an ever increasing amount of people who think this type of behaviour is acceptable !!

Re: Queue Jumpers !!

I've had exactly the same thing in a branch of Pets at Home (Lyme Green), which I avoid whenever possible now. this was the good old one when people start to stack stuff up at the till, and then wander off to continue their shopping, as though they've reserved it, with other supposed to wait until they're finished.

In this case, once I'd politely pointed out to the 13-year old or so till tart what her duties included and left the shop, said till tart turned to someone else in there and slagged me off. This happened to be my partner, so she got round 2!

When these ignorant gits do this - take them on. No tolerance. We tut and look the other way far too often.

Re: Queue Jumpers !!

The same que jumping annoyance is there on the road as well though.
The amount of drivers using the incorrect (ie lane for turning right) lane and cutting back in at the last minute to avoid queing really fecks me off.
I tend to speed up and slow down to try block these people. I know i risk gettin hit but I just cant help being a bit defensive!!

Re: Queue Jumpers !!

Yet another one of those I'm better than you people I guess but good for you for challenging her

It could have been worse though, you could have been in a pet shop and she could have been buying a cat flap

/places tin hat on and dives for cover.......

Re: Queue Jumpers !!

Those Staywell ones are the best. If someone's buying one of those they are clearly a person of superior taste and should be allowed straight to the front of the queue.
