Yesterday I was at a little fair with my mother and my daughter. There was a longish line for food so my mother got in line while my daughter and I went over to the chalkboard menu at the front of the line to pick out what she wanted.
While we were picking out food from the menu, this woman says to us, "Hey, you're not in line, you know."
"Yes, I know," I said.
"If you want to get food, you should get in line," she pointed out.
Gee, thanks for the tip.
"The line's not getting any shorter, you know," she added, giving the person behind her a look like she thought I was an idiot.
I thought maybe she was trying to be helpful with the first comment. But I could have done without the second two and the patronizing tone.
