I’m being completely ignored. 

Woman Behind Me: “Wow, some people are rude!”

Me: “Oh, it’s okay! I mean, he obviously thinks he’s important enough to cut the line. Much more important than puny us! Besides, I don’t mind missing five minutes of my life; I have plenty left!”

The man did not turn around, but I did notice a twitch and noticed a sudden glare in the mirror the cashiers use to check if carts are empty. He heard me, all right.
