i broke up a pushing skirmish in line this afternoon. when i got to the bottom of it i was met with this explanation,
"he cut me"
"i lined you up in abc order. both your names begin with r. he didn't cut you, he was going to where he was suppose to be."
"no! i said my name has the letters R, then A, so i should be first. but then he said that his name has R then A, so he should be first. but i then i have an M and he has a Y so I SHOULD BE FIRST but he said it didn't matter after the second letter."
this wasn't just a cut, it was an insult to webster and anyone who is really anal about alphabetical order. however, i was amazed at the fact they even thought to look at the second letter in their names.
