Take that, you line-jumping bastard!

Poor Shog has succumbed to the Cold of Endless Coughing, so I went forth for the appropriate meds. There were a lot of people in line, many of whom appeared unwell, so no one was happy when some hacking jerk cut in front of everyone and asserted that he was "too sick to wait." Before anyone could even think of objecting, the checker became our hero by refusing to serve the man.

"I'm sorry, sir, but you'll have to wait your turn," he said, as he turned away to fetch a prescription order—and then the line-jumper actually went to the back of the line!


It may not seem like much to celebrate, but I was ecstatic. All too often, checkers do serve line-jumpers, and it's infuriating.

It's the little things.

Truthfully, I usually hold to a stern glare, but I love that the checker was holding the queue to a higher standard!

I usually announce brightly, "Oh, the end's back there!" so that the line-jumper can't pretend to have made a mistake. In this instance, everyone was so happy that the checker took charge that we all stood up a bit straighter and seemed not to cough as much. :D

Poor Shog. I've suffered through the Cold of Endless Coughing so can empathize.

Well done of the checker.

I will tell him of your empathy.
