What did and does surprise me, is how few people have the garbanzos to say or do anything about it when it happens to them.
I'm one of those with said garbanzos.
I relish these situations, because what is surprising is how fast and sheepishly those who attempt this with the wrong person back down.
Ruders gonna rude.
Someone's gotta teach 'em.

Here's an example of super-polite locals. I was in NTUC Toa Payoh MRT last year, basement level trying to get to the check outs. I had my basket and was only a metre or less from a free till, inching ahead, but rather stuck next to some guy with a trolley carrying a rucksack.
Then, wham bam! A woman appeared in front of me and put her basket down at the till. As that till and the next were back to back, and no one could have got past me, my thoughts were 'Where on earth did she just appear from!?'
Then it dawned on me. She must have been elsewhere, maybe in another queue, had seen the free till, and that it would take me a few seconds to reach it. She had then left the shop with her basket, gone through the public MRT underpass, and come back in through the exit in front of me!
