i was waiting in that cab line outside of penn station last week. normally, i just walk home but had a large suitcase with me so decided to wait. it was busy so there were probably 50-100 people in line and the person who normally whistles for and directs the cabs wasn't around. everything was pretty civilized as most in line knew the routine, or so i thought. after waiting about 10-15 mins someone jumps out of the back of the line to grab a cab, essentially cutting a hundred people, some of whom have probably been waiting 30 mins. i wasn't close enough to say anything. then, it happened again about 5 mins later some distance away and at this point i'm getting pissed. decided if it happens again i'll start policing the line even if i look like an idiot. it didn't happen again before i left.
i know, anti-climactic story but i'm curious if anyone would have made a scene.
