My dad recently keyed up a guy's car for taking up too many spaces.  He parked diagnolly across two spaces so no one would ding it.

I misspoke...the person removed the valve stems with the same tool you're talking about :)

I was next in line at cvs and stepped to the side slightly to grab the kind of mints I wanted. The woman behind me jumped in front of me right at the guy in front of me left >:(

Don't make blueskies choke a female dog!

Blue, I hope you said something!  I would have told her (semi-politely, first) that I was in line.  If she didn't listen, Step 2 would be choking per CTL's instruction :)

That's a bit harsh.

I didn't say anything because it would have been snarky, " I leaned over to grab some mints and you got in front of me? Really?" And a lot of people would have heard

"Ma'am? I was in line."

Option 2: "Ma'am? I may be small but I will f-ing nail you to the wall."

That crap happens to me every time I go to CVS.  Who cares if other people hear.  Look the person straight into their eyes and say in a strong firm yet semi-polite respectful way (not angry or yelling or bitchy, use the commanding voice tone) "I'm ahead of you in line, move back and wait your turn."

If they go d-bag on you with that then you stand up straight in proper posture and raise your voice a little and say straight to the persons face "back off I'm first, step aside now"

Just don't be shy and worry about what strangers you will probably never see again think and then you cash out and go home.

Encore, encore.
