A short account of line cutting;
Waiting at the counter for cigarettes in Prince. Very busy, just before Christmas, a woman in front of me is buying baby milk (why the fuck is baby milk, tobacco and booze sold together?).
Another woman slides up to the woman getting served, so close i think, oh they must be together. Oh no, the other woman gets her change and walks away then this second woman orders all her stock for her sorry-sorry store.
Ok, I realize I got bumped, no biggy, I let it slide. But as I’m waiting, another rude bitch tries to slide in beside me, I’m boiling inside, wishing her to make her move, I’m tight as a spring and ready to strike, I’m 6′ 2″, slim, and mean looking when i want to be.
I put on my war face and wait.
Sure enough as the other woman tries to squeeze out with her supply of fortune and champion, woman 2 starts to speak to the sales assistant who is more than aware I have been waiting. I unleash the Kraken and say in a very loud, deep voice in slow clear English “Excuse me, I am next, I have been waiting in line, you have pushed in”. She looks up at me, mumbles something and moves out of my way. The sales girl, not wanting to make eye contact, asks me what I want.
Loud voice again; “I want a full carton of fortune white stick”. She replies, “white stick Sirrr?”
Im done now. I see the security guard eyeballing me from his bamboo stick duties, so I snarl through my gritted teeth, “thats wat I fucking just said”.
She served me, I paid, got my change, and as I rudely pushed past the troll who tried to cut me out, I called her a fucking monkey.
Im kinda well known in my town, due to my unusual dogs, and the fact I drive a tricycle and speak a lot of bisaya. Im sure they know me better at Prince now…..Published in
