People who get overly upset in long lines and never shut up about it!

Published by at 3:00 am under Jerks

Hey, you know what could make this long line go faster? Listening to you complain about it for 20 minutes!

We all feel the same way when we open the door at the post office and see a long line. One of two words is usually whispered at this point, one begins with an F and the other an S. I go with the classic F-word but then I get over it and wait like everyone else.

But there is a different breed of person out there whose sole purpose on earth is to make an already long line feel even longer with constant sighs and groans. They shift from foot to foot and dramatically look down the line in an attempt to understand how there could POSSIBLY be a line at the post office 5 days before Christmas. They fold their arms while they huff and puff over this tragedy against mankind.

Oh no, it does not stop there does it. These annoying turds have one more trick up their sleeves and this is what really gets my blood boiling. These assholes love to try and draw everyone into some sort of customer revolt. They start to say things like, “can you believe this” or “this is ridiculous, why don’t they hire more people?” They assume just because you are stuck in the same line you will agree to join the killing spree they are planning. Look guy, I just want to mail these Star Wars figures to the guy who won them on Ebay, I don’t need to join your militia.

One time, while waiting in line for a rental car, this guy in line was losing his shit to the point where he drafted a crazy person petition and asked all of us to sign it. I have no idea what we would have been agreeing to exactly, but obviously everyone ignored him. I should also mention that we only waited in this line for approximately 6-8 minutes. I’m surprised we all lived through such hell!

I see the obvious irony in complaining about other people complaining so shut up.

    Marc and I are fascinated by these people!!!!!

    Who do they think they are? Why are they so important? And why are they everywhere?? I find the airport is the worst, people are literally losing their minds when they gave themselves 30 minutes to check in and get to the gate. What do they get for their insanity? Why, they get to go to the front of the line. And then I watch them snicker about it all the way to security.

    It does not matter where the lines are forming, I always find some asshole feels he deserves to go to the front of the line. At the grocery store, the bank, traffic, the post office…. they feel they do not deserve to wait like everyone else.

    Man, I hate those assholes!!!!

    I understand your pain completely, working in customer services at PC World (a computer superstore in the uk).

    One time when I was a n00b to PCW and clearly had a ‘Staff in training’ badge on there was a huge line forming at my check-out when the next customer I got was a frail little old lady who took a few minutes to find her purse, pay etc etc.
    Anyways the next guy starts shouting at me when I said ‘Sorry about the wait’ and I nearly cried (being 16 and new to these assholes) until this woman of gigantic proportions started bellowing at him to shut his damned mouth.

    I started laughing and the guy was humbled.

    The customers don’t need to revolt against the workers, they need to revolt against the assholes!

    Sure waiting in line is sh1t, but it’s necessary for order and fairness, if you don’t go to the post office or bank before lunch then of course you’re going to be in line for an hour, everyones in the same boat, everyones stupid enough to go somewhere at the exact same time as everyone else, so live with the stupidity and wait. I know this person who goes to the bank and waits in line to find out their account balance because they simply refuse to use the ATM to find out or even more simpler internet banking. It’s people like this that clog our lines up, I think what would make everyone happy is if someone is in the line for a stupid reason and the person behind the counter deems it stupid then they are escorted out of the building, or slapped til they bleed or something. Need to rid the world of the stupid, population control dam it!…sorry about the rant haha

    Alexandra, I am sorry an asshole almost made you cry but luckily the giant woman squashed him for you. I am always extra patient and respectful the the elderly. They can take all the time the want, they have earned that right.

    Death, ranting is always encouraged. You are safe here.

    I had a similar situation Alexandra.

    I was working with another girl at a pharmacy and my co-worker was on cash and I was doing stock when some big fat ass woman cut in line and demanded to know where the public washroom was.

    My co-worker was like 15-16 and this woman just start ripping into her when she told the woman that we had no public washrooms so I walked over. So I see this and my friend is practically in tears so I walk over.

    After repeating the same that my co-worker said, the woman yells at me “WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO PISS ON THE FLOOR!?!”

    my response was “Be my guest, I’ll get you a mop”

    The other customers laughed so hard she stormed out. Oh well 🙂

    Neish, great story but it would have been even better if she actually did piss all over the floor. Maybe a little poop too.

    Story time!!!

    OK, so I’m pretty much a wise-ass most of the time, although lately (as in the past five years or so) I’ve been exhibiting amazing amounts of restraint when it comes to people being asswads.

    However, a few years ago I was in line at a bar in Salt Lake City for the one restroom serving both genders… There was this chick, pretending to be intoxicated (do you have any idea how hard it is to get drunk at a bar in SLC?) on the reduced-alcohol-%-by-volume brew they serve and the conservatively metered mixed drinks. Anyhow, she was being a total fuck, gesticulating and blathering on and on about how bad she had to go, and who was “in there taking so long”. It was her complete lack of expletives though that made her most irritating. She started pounding on the door, and cutting people. OK, so she’s desperate, right? I get it, that’s cool. Anyhow, she cuts me, eventually (I was 2nd in line to relieve myself) and won’t shut. the. fuck. up.

    Oh, she’s got this huge gap in her teeth, and a lazy eye, and hair quaffed up to the stratosphere, and I recall some out-of-season, arguably out-of-style boot thingies, that chicks seem to wear a lot these days (the fuzzy suede leather moon-boot lookin’ things). Boots like this just piss me off and I immediate discount whoever is wearing them.

    Where was I.. Oh, right… She turns to me, and the people behind me, and says “blah blah blah blah, blah blah blabidy blah this line is taking like, FOREVER.. how long does it take to pee? Oh my gawd! blah blah blah”.

    So I lean in and say to her: “you think this line is long? I have a coat pocket filled with cocaine.. the devil’s dandruff… and a bic pen I stole from the bar. What do you say we go in the bathroom together and you can snort some lines longer than this one (looking back, pointing to the line) off of my ass?” I said this completely deadpan. She stops in her tracks, and I can’t figure out which eye to look at (recall one of them was lazy). She made a little “tick” sound with her tongue, and shifted her weight, and for a second, I thought she was going to agree (I don’t use hard drugs and didn’t have a pocket filled with coke) and then she kinda just freaked out and ran out of the place, probably pissing her 1-size-too-small jeans. A friend got up from the booth they were in and chased her out with her coat and such. My friend then commandeered the now-empty booth.

    Moral of the story – it doesn’t pay to make a fuss in line, because there might be some wise-ass in line that is fully aware of the fact that you might be a recovering mormon. I did get a bit drunk that night from the numerous drinks that the rest of the line bought for me.

    My story time! I was in a bar that only had ONE bathroom for everyone and I was checking out the door to see if it was available. So I’m about six drinks in and this giant chick starts screaming, “Are you looking at my boyfriend whore!” I’m not one to be called a whore lightly so I proceed to ask if she would like to take this outside. -Side note- I kickboxed for 7 years and I’m not scared of any fat, drunk girl. So we go outside and she sucker punches me in the mouth. I then kick her ass so hard she starts crying for her mommy. I stand over her and bleed on her face until I hear sirens. I then take my leave and pee the pee of the justified. Why would I look at her fugly boyfriend when I could get any guy I want with my fake tits?! Two posts coming full circle! True story and smiles all around!

    SanFran, I guess I will always threaten line jerks with hard drugs from now on.

    Xina, please tell me your shirt got ripped while kicking her ass so your awesome (at least that’s what I hear) tits were exposed as you stood over her bleeding. Please tell me this and tell it to me very slowly.

    How about the DMV? That one is pretty terrible. I worked there for a small amount of time and I almost helped them kill me because they wouldn’t shut up. I honestly wanted them to go on a killing spree just to end my, what seemed like, lifelong suffering.
    And, after that, they treated me like shit. But, I’m the DMV guy, and you don’t treat me like shit, or you don’t get your shit properly licensed and you get pulled over and get a ticket.

  11. SanFranon 02 Nov 2008 at 7:25 pm

    Ohhh, yeah – the DMV is a big ole ass reaming (or, more specifically, what I imagine an ass reaming to be like). I bet there is more sighing that goes on there than anywhere else on the planet. Yes, even Somalia.
