I doubt he was actually asking, I think he just said that when he got called out on cutting, but that's just how it comes off as to me. Maybe it's a double entendre he's been practicing. Good to see it's not working!
I can see a few exceptions, such as a quick "which way to the ladie's room" when the line is a dozen people long and directions are needed urgently
or even a quick check to make sure that the line there is the line you need.
But for the most party, yeah, even when they say a "quick question" it usually isn't.
I have yet to have anyone come up to me and say "BATHROOM!".. and if they did I'd probably still be confused.
But yes, a few exceptions don't hurt. Those are just the people that actually wait in line before asking.
The most common question I get is often while I'm busy helping someone else: Where are your batteries? Reach your hand out a few inches and you'll literally touch them
. How did you find me but not the thing that's right infront of you?
