I think most of us would do the same.
Yesterday in Walmart, I looked down to read an incoming text message, and a woman cut in front of me as the cart ahead of me had just moved forward. The man in front of her looked back at me, wondering if I was going to say anything, and I just gave a wistful shrug...trying to be nice to people during the holiday season, you know? So I just let it go. The redneck-looking fellow behind me asked me quietly if she had indeed just done that, and right then I noticed what was in her cart....two packages of some sort of adult "absorbent underwear" (so the package stated). So I turned back to him and said, very quietly, "Look what she is buying.....no wonder she's in a hurry to get out of here." That triggered a loud "Ha!" from him and he turned away trying to keep his composure....by then she was cashing out so I didn't think she noticed us, but the humor of the situation overrode my initial displeasure by far.
