Person Asks if They’re Wrong for How They Treated Customers in Line at a Store

Well, this doesn’t sound like a regular visit to the store, does it?

In fact, it sounds like this person had a pretty experience…but did they act like an a**hole?

That is the question, my friends…

Take a look at their story and see if you think they were justified in their actions.

AITA for not letting a mom with a baby in front of me in a long queue and telling an elderly lady to f**k off?

“I went to a shop today and service there was really slow with only one register open (no self checkout) and a really long line of people with majority of them having full carts of items, I on the other hand had only one item.

Behind me was an elderly lady and a mom with a baby, the older lady started telling the mom to skip the queue and go to the front because she’s with a child. I turned to her and asked her to speak for herself and that I do not agree that mom skips in front of me.

We started arguing and I said that this checkout does not give priority for pregnant people and parents so she should wait in line like everybody else and if she is unable because of a baby she shouldn’t bring the baby to the store with her.

The older lady started ranting how she has never seen behavior like this before, how I will understand when I have my own kids to which I said ‘if’ then she started telling me how my life will be horrible if I don’t and how I lack empathy and will regret my decision to which I told her to f**k off because I was tired of her bulls**t. The older women and a mom then just kept talking about me and my behavior between themselves and the mom then complained how she feels uncomfortable existing in a public space because of people like me.

I have absolutely no problem with kids. I don’t h**e them, they never bother me and parents in general here are able to control their kids so they are never a problem. However in this particular situation a child was calmly sleeping a stroller and I just don’t see a reason why she should have a privilege to skip a line just because she popped the baby out of her vajayjay.

Sure if a baby was screaming or she was carrying him in her hands or literally any reason but ‘I’m a mom so my time is more important than yours’ I would let her skip without a second thought. I’m just tired of parents feeling entitled just because without any adequate reason.
