    I went bowling with my friend and there was a que leading up to the till to pay. We stood in the queue for at least 15 mins then when it was our turn at the till we walked up to the till and we are just waiting to be served. A bloke with kids then pushed in front of us almost pushing us out the way (he had been in the quest somewhere behind us) and he said 'theres a que behind you love go and join it'. Me and my friend both said 'we have been in it' He said 'it goes all the way back there' I said 'yea we were just in it for 15 mins'. He ignored us and carried on being served. He looked annoyed and it wound me up but what could I do.

    What would you have said and done in this situation? Just curious

    Argued with him. Flagged it with a member of staff. I don’t care if hes angry or annoyed, if i waited in line before him i should be served first. Don’t let people do that to you next time.

    We told the staff member at the till she just sort of smiled and said 'I'l serve you next' so we left it at that. They don't really care.

    Ok thats not a problem because it prevents any escalation but if the staff offered no solution i would have been outraged.

    How though, the woman serving at the till just began to serve him kind of ignoring us.

    What solution could they offer? I think I'm missing something here lol. I mean I was angry as anything inside it ruined my game of bowls. I feel that just because I'm only small and 5ft people walk all over me.

    Height doesn’t really matter. I meant they said they will definitely serve you next.

    What would you have done, if the person at the till chose to serve him as she didn't know what had happened/ who was telling the truth etc. Everyone is saying 'lmao I would have stuck up for myself' but WHAT would you have done. Id have just shown myself up if Id have gone on at the till assistant.

    Lol all the sass you have in your anonymous posts would've been good if you used it on the man and cashier 😊

    "He would've met the wrong one if it was me" or "stuck up for myself" says it all really. I'm not going to give you the script. Tell the woman off and demand to be served obviously. If you're above that then ok stay fuming about it 😐

    I didn't intend to have sass when typing Im just trying to establish what others would have done/what I could have done since she agreed to serve me and did the best they could given her knowledge of the situation, but yea I need more guts in real life.
