Today, an old lady savagely shoved me out of a queue, after I'd been waiting for twenty minutes. I couldn't bring myself to fight back or say anything, and ended up dragging my sorry arse to the back of the queue. FML

Take a stand. People like that will continue to think they are the boss of everything if you don't defy them.

There is a logical explanation for this. Clearly this lady (or half beast) had some anger issues, and if the OP retaliated by arguing, she would've probably beaten him senseless with her walking stick.

I agree 1, once an old lady pushed passed me going into a store and turned and made a hissing sound at me.

Easy revenge opportunity missed - coulda said to her "I would have given you my spot if you'd asked since you're old and going to die sooner than me anyway."

YDI for not standing up for yourself . The world is turning into a big puss

There was no way to win in this situation. He makes a scene she playes innocent and then everyone thinks he's trying to take advantage of the elderly / is an asshole. Or he does nothing and wallows in self pity. Either way old lady wins.. ******* old people...

I think #43's answer is the only way to win in this situation.

Just cuz she's old dosnt give her that right so tell her to get her wrinkly ass out of your spot

#65 Tell me which country you are from so I can insult it.

F that! If the line was so long, someone had to witness her shoving you like that. You should have moved right back in front of her and just gave her a deathly stare.

Take a stand. People like that will continue to think they are the boss of everything if you don't defy them.

I bet if you shoved her BACK with equal force she'd think TWICE before doing that to another person!

or you would get horrified looks from other customers for pushing an old lady..

Sometimes that back fires, and they just want to show their dominance even more.

When u get pushed do a tactical roll then silently incapacitate her.... Problem solved.

Who cares if other ppl give u stares?! They probably saw her push u. "treat other ppl how u expect to be treated" so if she pushes u push her back don't be a pussy

I really don't see how you would need to go to the back of the line. Even if the fuckhead took your place, you should still be right after her.

okaiii soo ppl always comment on a comment that has nothing to do with it and should comment on the actual story im referring to # 50 cuz hes talkn to OP on a comment someone made

On the other hand, he did have self control. Props to you, OP.

If you got pushed by an old lady, you deserve to go to the back ya wuss

Drag her back there with you, coward!

dannyboy? time to become dannyMAN! take a stand!

It bothers me when the elderly take advantage of their 'seniority'. You just can't fight back with a frail, old lady.

I don't think frail old ladies can savagely shove people.

Those cranky old people... Let her have a way, she won't be here much longer, don't know what she has been through...tough times make a tough person.

There is NEVER and excuse for putting your hands on someone like that. Never.
