So I was up at Canada's Wonderland the other day, and besides the interesting cross-section of people you see in these places, I noticed a bunch of points where people just don't seem to notice that there's anyone else there. For one thing, there's been a "no smoking in lines" policy for a couple of years now, but sure enough, there are always more than a few assholes who can't seem to figure out that this rule applies to them. The one that I noticed was really bad this year was line jumping. Last year, they started putting up big signs in the busier queues that essentially said that if you cut in line, you can be kicked out of the park, and that this includes leaving and reentering the line for ANY reason. Sure ehough though, there were at least a dozen times through the day where people seemed to think that this was a rule for everyone except for them, and that "they were just trying to get back to their friends" up ahead. I finally had enough and just stopped letting them by, telling them that they could meet their friends at the exit, or get in the back of the line, but that I wasn't letting them by. Why, after I've been waiting an hour already, should I just let you hop in front of me? The problem is, it seemed like I got more dirty looks for confronting these people than the ones who were trying to cut through. I guess what I'm wondering is whether I'm the asshole here? I kind of think of it like being in a store and seing someone shoplifting-it's just wrong, and I don't see why we should just sit back and not do anything about it.
