Am I Over Reacting?

I was out grocery shopping just now with my girl at a nearby hypermarket. So when I was about to go to the counter to pay, I saw something annoying. OK let me fill you in with the scenario over there. All the lanes are really busy with lots of people queuing up to pay their groceries. There were about 3 people in front of me with whole lots of grocery to pay. That is less of my worries.

So as we were chatting while waiting for our turn, we saw this mid 60s uncle moving his trolley in front of our queue. OK, to put it simple, he was cutting queue. WTF! I am not sure if he realize that or not, but there is 1 more people behind me. I was waiting for the auntie in front of me to say something as women are more sensitive about this kind of matter. But she was just standing there talking to her friend. WTH???!!!

The uncle then acted like nothing was wrong with his act and just position himself in front of us all, right under our eyes. He was with his grandchildren. I am not sure if we should let this slide as he was a senior citizen and all. But if he would only ask or at least give some sign of cutting in, we would definitely oblige to gave him the spot. As if the long queue wasn't enough to tick me off the uncle's moves really tip the ice berg for me.

So coming back to my question, is it OK for him to do that? Am I too sensitive? One of the thing that I hate most during a long queue is cutting queue. He's old and all but still it's manners to ask before taking, right? And it's not a good example shown to the younger generation too. What will it reflect to them when they saw that? We can just simply cut queue and act as if it's OK. Typical Malaysian. Sad~!

OK... chill... I am more interested in the main question... Did you allow him to cut? =)

I would have gently tell him that there is a line .... It s not a mater of whether he is senior or so...

Like I mentioned, he already aligned himself into the line and nothing much could be said or done by that time. Sigh~!!!

I would like to call him off but I am worried that it would seemed that I am disrespectful to senior citizens. KNS~!
