So I'm on the door checking receipts when this lady comes up but before she gets anywhere near me, this guy cuts in front of her & I check his receipt & off he goes. Then the lady that he cut in front of comes up to me & hands me her receipt. She then says.."I was here first! He cut in front of me! What do you have to say about that?"
The only thing I could think of to say was "ok". She gave me a nasty look & said..OK?? is that all you have to say, OK????" Then as she was leaving she glared at me & I gave her a nasty look.
So what else was I supposed to say or do? Store was packed with people cause of the upcoming snow storm & I didn't feel like creating a scene.

Honestly? "I'm sorry, ma'am, but getting him out of the store seemed preferrable to his staying and causing a scene" probably would have worked a lot better.

Remember, "I'm sorry" doesn't always mean "I'm sorry I did something wrong"; it can mean "I'm sorry shit happens" too. ;)

Grrrrrrr

Yeah, really. Did she expect you to call a manager or something? What did she really expect you to say? "Another customer who has already left the store was a bit rude. Should we get the tear gas and police dogs?"

Oh, I know! You should have followed him BACK to his car before giving him a good talking to.

When you got people staring at you, saying something like that is hard to articulate.

totally agree. It's the come-back effect. The perfect thing to say never comes to mind first. It only comes along once the situation is long gone.

You were in a no win situation. Happens all the time with line jumpers. Get the person cut off screaming at you or the person who did the cutting screaming at you.

People suck. I hate them.

After some thought, I might have said "Yeah, he should have been going slower." I am curious now.

I have to go with Aisling on this one. WOuld have been polite to at least acknowledge that the previous guy was a douche, even if you did nothing wrong.

I think, "do you want me to call the wah-bulance?" wouldn't have made her happy,.

Practicing beforehand helps.

I think she would have been pissed no matter what you said.

Looking back on it though, would you have said something different?

Good question. IF I were to have said something different then it wouldn't be pretty...lol.
