Cool story. I had the experience of being a customer waiting while another customer berated the clerk at the fish counter because the grocery store did not have some kind of fish he wanted. He was really being mean. The poor woman, you could tell, was afraid to say anything. Finally I said to him in my best New York ethnic, "Why don't you shut up?" The look on his face was priceless. Then he wanted to know what business it was of mine. I said, "You're wasting my time while you yell at someone who doesn't even order the fish! Moron!" He stomped off. Bullies should always get a dose of their own medicine.
She said after that he was always polite.
