While it’s more constructive to write about the things men “should do,” every so often a guy gaffe pops up that’s too tough to not take public. In this blog installment, we openly address two such offenses and speak directly to the offenders.
REGISTER DASHERS: These me-first men usually perform their acts at carry-out restaurants, grocery stores and retailers where they — despite standing toward the back of a check-out/register line — take it upon themselves to sprint toward the front of any newly formed line. C’mon fella, how about letting customers 3-7 stroll over there first before your register-dashing selfishness (and 8th-in-line position) bumps someone out of their time-earned spot.
STALL CHATTERS: These loquacious bathroom tenants see no reason to let a silly stall come between them and casual conversation. They’ll offer friendly greetings or banal banter to any acquaintance that enters the area, despite the other person’s inability to even see who they are chatting with (unless a profiler of dress shoes). C’mon buddy, keep the small chat to areas that where everyone feels more comfortable.
