So I was at maccas the other day waiting in the line and there was no one behind me and my little sister came up to me and started asking me what I was ordering and so forth. I was also ordering for other people and forgotten what some of the orders were so I told my sister to stay in the line for me while I quickly ask who wanted what again because I forgot some of the orders. I came back and there was this lady standing behind my sister with children (I’m assuming grandchildren) and I went to stand next to my sister and this lady started going off at me and saying that I was pushing in the line and so I turned around and told her that my sister was actually holding my place for me then she started angrily telling me off in her language and I just gave her the dirties. I don’t think I’ve cut the line but this lady clearly doesn’t agree

  • I wouldn’t worry about it as your sister was in line!

  • You clearly didn’t cut the line! You had your sister hold your spot while you just popped off to confirm orders. She must’ve just been having a bad day maybe….

  • yes that is rude but maybe she was annoyed because people always do it to her etc. I think that if you just explain, then it is her problem to deal with. You weren’t cutting in. I think that the server could have paused your order and got hers processed in the wait or just explained that they were waiting to finish their order

  • Some people are so rude … she might have had a really bad day and took it all out on you

  • My goodness. So sorry that happened to you. Sounds like she was having a bad day and took it out on you

  • Try not to give it another thought; people often react in ways that we don’t understand. Who knows what was going on in her day. When this has happened to me; I just ignored the behaviour; looks and comments.

  • Think that lady needs to get a grip!

  • Must have been really annoying when you had a heap of orders to place too! I often stand beside my husband and people figure pretty quickly that we’re together and not letting each other in or jumping the queue or anything like that. Strange that she took such offense.

  • Sounds like her grandkids were ticking her off and she took it out on you. You did nothing wrong, just hope after all that drama you still remembered the order :-p

  • Just be thankful that you’re not related to her, or you don’t live next door to her. Sounds like she wouldn’t have believed you, no matter what you said. Maybe she was just having a bad day. But I guess in the scheme of things, it was only a serving line at Maccas, so I wouldn’t give it any more thought.

  • If you have someone saving your spot, then I don’t think your cutting the line either :(

  • Well, it doesn’t sound like you cut in line, but it doesn’t sound like either of you (you or the lady) were very polite, either.


    • Actually the only impolite thing I did was give her the dirties. I didn’t push in front of her or barge my way through I simply stood beside my sister and we exchanged a few words before she started having a go at me. I turned around and told her that my sister was standing in my place I didn’t raise my voice or scream or shout. She continued to talk about me angrily in her language and I knew it was directed at me because she was looking at me and giving me disgusted looks so I shot a look back at her. It took a lot to hold my tongue because I was raised to respect elders so I don’t think I was being impolite apart from the look I gave her.

  • Nah if your sister was standing in line for you and you just stood next to her how can that be pushing in as she would of still been stuck behind your sister regardless.
    I would of given her a mouthful to.

  • Nothing worse than someone that does push in line, but you were clearly not so you had every right to give her dirty looks and have your say so good on you.
