for the most part, ppl move when I say it. I'm pretty short, but I guess I say it in my "don't fvck w/ me" voice for certain people.

it really annoyed me when I was in college and ppl wanna have deep, emotional conversations in the middle of the main sidewalk or some ish. especially white hipsters. I have a huge dislike for them. then, I didn't say excuse me, I just pushed past them.

at work, it's hard getting middle schoolers to move b/c they want to socialize and whatever. I try to model good behavior by saying "excuse me" but I have been known to just send kids to the office if they try to get an attitude. I don't have time for all that mess.

yeah i hate it when people block the aisles. i will say excuse me twice. first time nicely, second time louder but still polite . after that im coming through and you and your cart will be moved with my cart.

i notice alot of foreigners dont say excuse me. really old people of all races are the worse.

They move.

On the rare occassion they don't, I say, "For the 2nd and final time, excuse...me. " and then they move, usually while apologizing to my smize.

I don't know what kind of passive aggressive ish that was but I notice some people take their sweet time to move when you say excuse me in certain situations. I have no problem pushing and getting people out my way tho.


Yup

Thats when 'bows are thrown.

i'm only asking once...maybe twice if you're elderly...after that...mooooooooove bish get out my way

i do have one rule that i do not deviate from.  if you are blocking a passageway i will not say excuse.  i will stand there and stare at you until you move.  to me standing in passageways are an act of aggression That's what they say it is in the body language books.  and when its done at work an act of intimidation I've read that too. and either way you will not be getting an "excuse me" from me.



 
I know a person who would always wait until it was time for me to get off work and then block the doorway.  He would listen for me, and time it to the second and come out of his office and just stand in the way.  Confused
 
After a few pushes and shoves, he didn't do that anymore.  LOL



dang who does that!! thats crazy.i would have reported him to hr for harassment .
