Please Queue Up!

I was at a grocery shop near my house today. My mother asked me to buy some frozen food for dinner. After I got everything needed, I went to the counter to pay for it.

As I was queued, suddenly, out of nowhere a not-so-old makcik cut the line. Without any feeling of guilty, she just placed all her groceries on the table. I was like, Excuse-moi, what gives?! Are u blind? Don't you see I am standing here, waiting for my turn to pay? Of course I didn't express it through words as it will make me the rude person instead or her (although I really wanted to! Geram betol!).

Although you are older than me, it doesn't give reason that you can simply cut the line. Not that I don't allow you to do so. Maybe you were in hurry, or your children were waiting in the car or you just really need to go to the toilet at that time (Hahaha!). But all you need to do is ask. Don't just cut the line. It will just make other people furious at you.

Moral of the story, lu fikir la sendiri makcik oii.

aziz, cite awak ni mengembalikan nostalgia saya zaman sekolah dulu. masa tu sekolah kat sains pekan, pahang. bila sabtu kami boleh outing ke bandar pekan yg cenonet tu. masa tu pulak, biasiswa masuk ke akaun bank bumiputra (skrg CIMB). kami x boleh buat atm kad. jadi tiap kali nak keluar duit kena beratur kat kaunter. Makcik& pakcik yg mana tak reti nak hormat org tgh beratur, main suka suka dia je potong line. dah le tu, time perhimpunan kat sekolah, pengetua ikut sama sound kitorg supaya membenarkan makcik&pakcik2 potong line. Ntah di mana moral valuenya saya pun tak tau...

@ Dilla - Sy sebenarnya x kisah sgt kalo makcik tuh nak potong pon, asalkan dia mintak izin/tnya saya dulu. Maybe dia nak cepat ker aper.
Makcik yg potong saya ni pon, xder la tua sgt pon. Sihat walafiat jer. Tu yg sya geram tuh. Hahaha!

Mmg la kena respect the elder one, tp, dorg pon kena respect hak kita gak. Mcm mana la dorg nak kita behave in courteous way kalo dorg sendir x tunjukkan.
