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 .

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.

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.

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.

i notice this too. I usually either start to begin to push past them (without touching); or repeat myself very loudly
...
happens alot in supermarket aisles. KMTAngry....worse when they bring their 4 kids and 13 cousins just to get some bread and oil, standing around in the aisle, blocking everybody and looking at you like, 'what?'.

My most memorable no-response to "excuse me" was one time at the hair shop with my sister. This big white girl was with her black toddler son with I guess her baby daddy's momma. This truck parked her big ass behind me. Me tryna be nice says "excuse me" twice and nicely. I guess the ratchet hoodrat wanna-be bubba starts wilding out talking bout "bitch don't fcuk with me" I was surprised at first then busted out laughing. Then I shoved thru her and let her behind have it. and she did stfu. I don't understand why folks think they can just act a fool and block people......even when they hear you say excuse me.

Phone post if this looks janky
