END OF THE LINE ... AT LAX!


Ladies and Gentlemen, meet "Susie Queu," the scourge of Delta Flight 2054 to Atlanta. Susie doesn't like to wait in lines and will apparently do whatever it takes to avoid them. I first noticed her in the security line next to mine. She boldly cut right in front of a woman who, for her part, wouldn't stand for it. "Excuse me, honey," said the woman, "But some of us have been waiting here for a while. The end of the line is that way." I watched out of the corner of my eye as Susie went to the end of the line, looked around for an Unsuspecting Sap, and then meandered her way in my direction. At first she kept her distance and then, just when she she thought I wasn't looking, she quietly slipped in line ahead of me. I was ready for her. I whipped out my Spycam, pointed it in her direction and started taking photos of her from various angles. "Don't mind me," I said, zooming-in for a close-up, "I'm just doing an online expose on people who cut in line and the forces that motivate them." "Oh," she stammered, "Did I cut in front of you? I'm so sorry ..." She again walked to the back of the line, only to attempt the same trick, yet again, in another line. This time, she succeeded. Some people say 'life's too short,' why sweat the small stuff when someone cuts in front of you in line like that ... but I say you have to draw the line somewhere!

I agree you need to draw the line somwhere.

I like your direct approach with her. BTW, did you notice if she got through her line faster than you got through yours?

Hi Webster,
Yes ... she got through faster than me, sorry to say ...
Best,
Marty

I agree, being direct and calling her out was superb.

That was a good demonstration of assertiveness Marty, avenger of the meek!
