So this afternoon I stopped by the DMV office and the line was out the frigging door. As I was approaching the end of the line at my normal walking pace (I am 6' 4", so I cover a bit of ground rather quickly) this little pudgy dude waddles up as fast as he can just short of running and we arrive at the end of the line at exactly the same moment and both stand side-by-side in the next place until he says "Would you let me in this space here?" indicating the space between me and the next guy ahead of us. I wait a couple of seconds, giving him plenty of opportunity, and then simply said "No." He looks up at me (he was literally a foot or more shorter) and says "May I ask why not?" I look down and say "You didn't say 'please'." He then says "Please?" Me: "Too late." Him: "No room for compromise?" Me: "None." He then lights into this diatribe about courtesy and compromise, at least that was the gist of it and after a minute or two I stop him and say "I have to tell you, I am stone deaf in this ear and fortunately I cannot hear you." (this is quite true I might add. I am stone deaf in my right ear). After a couple of minutes of silence he moves over to my left and says: "I am sorry that you are deaf in that ear." I replied "Don't be. You had nothing to do with it." At this point a gal came up (who had apparently been parking the car) and they start talking about how much BS it was that the line was so long, they even tried calling the 800 number to try and get an appointment while they were in line! (what a couple of douchebags!) and he kept trying to prod more out of me but I wasn't taking the bait at all. all told we were in line about 20 minutes, and when I got to the counter my question for the DMV guy took him quite awhile to answer, he had to go in back and ask his supervisor about it and that took several minutes. When I got my answer I turned and left. Almost expected the little bugger to comment on how long I took but didn't. Anyhow, I thought it was a funny exchange and yo'all might get a smile out of it. Don't forget to say "please" and "thank you"!
