    And in rickshaws pulled by natives.

    So I was in a coffeeshop recently and it was packed. The line was to the door, and the poor employees were running themselves ragged trying to keep up. After I place my order, I'm standing near the pickup area and overhear this woman demand straws. Not "may I have a straw, please," mind you. Just "straws," said in the iciest voice that could possibly be applied to a single word. The kid behind the counter, who is frantically working on other orders, politely points out that there are straws right behind her, with the milk and sugar. She glares at him and says, "Short straws."

    My jaw dropped. The poor kid stopped what he was doing, with probably 20 people waiting, and got her short straws. Yet she still marched out in a huff, as though she'd been personally wronged. I'd have said something to her, had I thought it would have made a difference.


    ALWAYS say something. ALWAYS.

    I got into an argument with a Canadian at the local Verizon store. I don't know his whole story as he'd gone over it all with the manager some time before I'd gotten there, but she presented him with his options, none of which he liked. They sounded perfectly reasonable to me, but he was simply being a jerk, saying "Well I dont' want that, and I'm the customer, and the customer's always right." She tried tellling him what their policy was, but he'd just interrupt her with "I'll tell what your policy is! The customer is always right!"

    I got fed up -- the store was busy, and a whole bunch of people were waiting -- and I finally told him to take the option and leave. This short, chubby dude looked at me, jerked his thumb towards the door, and said "Check it." I just about pounded his doughy little face right there. We exchanged words, I called him an asshole, and he asked the manager to kick me out because I swore and that was rude. She just walked away.

    Thirty minutes later I was in Target. A couple of college-age dudes came up to me and said "Hey man, you could have kicked that dude's ass!" I was a bit surprised, but I just said "thanks" and went about my business. I have fans now!

    So this A**hole in a Nissan truck pulls up into the parking lot outside my apartment complex(I'm watching from my 3rd story window). The guy decides he's gonna be cool and triple park lengthwise across the parking spots. The Ass gets out with the definite "that guy" swag and walks away as a very attractive girl gets out of the passenger seat(obviously he made no effort to even wait on her)...after watching several older women have to park much farther away due to this Ass's attitude I calmly walked to the fridge and grabbed one of the eggs that has been prepping for 3 months just for a moment like this...I double checked for witnesses and then smoothly placed the egg in his truck bed...walked away and continued studying.

    One Asshole sometimes requires a second.

    They do in NYC - although I can't imagine why anyone would want to get McD delivered. It's gross right off the griddle so I don't want to think of what it looks/tastes like after 30mn and cold.

    What about assholes that know they are more important than everyone else? Do you have a different opinion of them?

    Kind of like a small timer asshole versus big timer asshole. . .

    people in Singapore, Malaysia, HKG, Philippines and I don't know where else can order online 24/7 too, if you feel the urge to eat cold soggy fries at 3 in the morning.

    Lines (queues to you nitpickers) are a recent invention here in South Korea, so I see self-important assholes shoving and pushing others all the time. This also happens a lot on the road. Basically, bigger and more expensive cars get the right of way, unless you're a quick-delivery old man on a moped, in which case you can run every red light you see and also go down sidewalks, because you're old and entitled to be an idiot.

    On a somewhat related note, there was an interesting post over at The Truth About Cars that had a guy asking whether or not we can do without large ones. His post was followed by about three million vitriolic comments containing knee-jerk reactions like "GO BACK TO RUSSIA" and "SOCIALIST" and "THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY I CAN RIDE MY CANYONERO WHENEVER I WANT"

    We might not have working queues here in SK, but at least we don't have pricks using the "It's a free country" excuse for everything. Here it's called "I'm older than you, and I am also a male"

    so what happened as a result?
    The lady behind the counter looked at him with a "WTF?" expression and told them they don't deliver, she just kept saying "stand in line" while he continued to rant and rave until he got so pissed he left. The rest of us customers being typical Canadians, just stood there and watched quietly, and grumbled about it a bit after he left.
    I got into an argument with a Canadian at the local Verizon store.
    This is the best start to a story I've ever heard. You could write an off-broadway play starting with that line. BTW, how did you know he was a canadian?

    Yeeears ago I was working as a personal trainer in an upscale neighborhood where this supposedly "world renound" back surgeon worked out/looked at himself in the mirror. One day I politely asked him to remove the plates from the machine he was working on as per gym rules and was told "if I removed my plates, you wouldnt have a job." A while later he asked for large towels as he wanted to take a swim and carried on like I have never seen a grown man behave when told they would be ready in 5 minutes. Not surprising really, what do you think becomes of these kids whose parents dote on them?

    Can someone explain why a**holes seem to enjoy parking their cars across multiple spots? I've never understood this phenomenon.
    Generally goes hand-in-hand with big trucks (what they need said trucks for in the suburbs is beyond me). The same people used to try to cut people off and get ahead of them in the parking lot of my school. As I drove a pos car and didn't care about scratches or anything which they would have to pay for, I made it a point to block every one of them and proceed to let other people who were waiting out of their stalls. Sometimes they'd even get mad at me, which was very amusing since they're the ones who look like idiots
