me: *waits patiently in a line in a busy establishment with limited employees who can only work so fast
every 40+ person in the vicinity: OHHHHHHH MY GOD THIS IS RI-DIC-U-LOUS why is the space time continuum not being broken to IMMEDIATELY ACCOMODATE me, The Most Important Person In The World,
Often when I’m standing in line in a store or something, the clerk will look at me while they’re ringing up the previous person or whatever and say, “I’ll be with you in a minute.”
I sometimes reply with a pretend tantrum: “NOW NOW NOW!” in a baby voice, very briefly so they know I’m joking.
Unfortunately, the response from clerks and customers is usually, “Some people are like that!!!”
