Queue jumper at Lucky on Sihanouk

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I've even had that happen here at Lucky with an Asian lady. Good on her.
Yep. I don't mind at all if it's a situation like that... though I do get a bit confrontational if it's a pretty equal amount of items involved. And I prefer they ask or be invited... though I won't be a prick about it generally, instead I'll comment on it lightly with a smile.

Once I went to the 10 items or less line and there was a person with 14 items.

True story.

In some parts of America that's considered grounds for justifiable homicide.

Is this a Charity Thread? 'Some Khmer man jumped my queue'?

Are Python not playing the O2 at the moment? This really needs to be inverted 'Thread of the Year'

Go on, go on, go on, let me know before I attempt to sleep, this is a piss take isn't it ?

I helpfully informed the gentleman is question and suggested he remove 4 of his items. He agonised about which items he could do without and eventually placed 4 of them behind mine. He payed for his first 10 items then returned to the back of the queue to pay for the other 4. Actually some people turned up whilst his first 10 items were being scanned but they didn't mind having to wait for him to fiddle with his change during two consecutive transactions as he was "an outstandingly pedantic person". At this point I suggested that we fix the sign above the till as it read 10 items or less instead of 10 items or fewer. Everyone was happy to wait whilst we fetched the managers, a ladder and a felt tip pen.

To this day there is a photo of me by the entrance with the words Customer of the Year written beneath.
