A while ago, Mrs. Mi Amigo was falsely accused of queue-jumping at the checkouts in Fair Price. A gentlemen (who had not seen properly what had happened, but formed his own opinion nevertheless) approached her and said, "We all have the right to queue up!" To which my good lady replied, "Yes, we do, don't we?"zzm9980 wrote:This doesn't even make sense.

It seems that the fear people previously had about speaking out in public is now rapidly vanishing, probably due to them 'getting away with it' online. Now I wonder how many of the people who have smiled and been nice to me over the years have only done that in the expectation of extracting some money or other benefit from me, and actually despised me underneath all the pleasant comments and gestures. I really want to give people the benefit of the doubt and maintain my faith in human nature generally, but at times like this it becomes harder.
IMO this place is heading for serious problems if the bigoted vitriol and anti-foreigner sentiment / policies continue to grow.
Barnsley, sorry to hear of your experience mate. We'll help you put this behind you on Friday night.
The guy having a pop.at me was equally clueless as to the facts also but chose to make up in his head what the "truth" was. Despite me explaining that he wasnt even there when the queue formed.
