At att store no employees to keep order guy came at midnight left a chair and went home comes back at 5am and demands his spot in line (we had moved his chair) threatens violence .. Sucks cause this store only has 5-10 phones and this douchebag of a human being is likely going to get one

Sucks but you shouldn't have riled him up. Not like there's rules or someone in charge and it's only one person. Let him go back to his spot and try not to play sherriif next time over a phone. It'll only lead to drama.

Yes well that one person could very well stand between me getting one or not. Appeasement is why we have assjoles like this they think they can do what they want
Life isn't fair sometimes buddy. Complain to the store manager or call the cops.

This kind of thing really pisses me off. Others are right that there's point in risking harm over a phone, but it's just the principle of it. ******s just do and take whatever they want because they know people won't stand up to them.

The title of this thread makes me giggle.... sounds like a little kid.

But seriously line cutters are complete asshats who always seem to be the biggest ******** in the world.....ironically probably with the smallest:rolleyes:

"Shouldn't have riled him up"? Really? I think the douche line cutting was doing the riling, don't you?

What if next time he thinks, "Sod the chair, I'll just turn up and push in at the front"? Is that acceptable? How would you stop him then? I mean, the only difference is that there was a chair there or not - but this guy throwing his weight around to get his own way (unfairly) results in ultimately the same stand-off.

"He's only one guy" - yes, maybe. But next time it could be more. He might bring a friend. Other's might think "why the heck should I bother queuing and playing fair?".

Pandering to these bullies is not the way you maintain order and fairness. I'm not saying that anyone should "take the law into their own hands" - but there are clearly two options here:

1) As others have said, if he used threatening behaviour then call the cops.

2) As soon as the store opens, let the staff know what had happened. Ask them to look at CCTV footage if they so wish to backup your claim.

Just letting a bully get away with their bullying behaviour is the wrong thing to do, for everyone.... Unfortunately some bullies never grow up - doesn't mean their behaviour should be tolerated though.

Can't stand people, who do ish like that. Dude is one of those assclowns, who thinks he can do whatever he wants to anybody and that there's not a damn thing anybody can do about it. Dude is nothing more than a school yard bully...who won't change his ways until somebody bigger and badder steps up and drops his ass

lol wow. Some people are just unbelievable and carry a sense of self-entitlement. I would've called the cops. They could remove him for disturbing the peace depending on his actions.
