Supermarket queuing etiquette

There were big queues in the supermarket at every checkout. I was near the back of a queue. They announced that they would be opening the till next to me. People from my the middle of my queue moved across but the woman behind me rushed to get in front me and another person who was maneuvering her pram and basket. I said to the pusher, "excuse me, we were both in front of you" and she looked at me but continued loading her trolley. The pram woman shrugged at me, so I just stood and waited my return.
AIBU to think this woman effectively pushed in front of me and the pram pushing customer?
I fucking hate Lidl.

Yanbu at all. As far as I'm concerned if a new till opens then the people next in line who haven't already loaded their items onto the existing checkout should move over to the new checkout in the order that they were originally in. I've had a few people do this to me, the other day in Aldi I was in a long que with only a bottle of milk to my name, the till to my right suddenly opened and two people behind me (who had trolleys filled to the brim) dashed passed me as quick as they could. I said excuse me you'll find I was next in the que, one woman completely blanked me and the other just smirked and said well you weren't quick enough was you! I swear I could have slapped the snotty bitch.

How about this though. I was in the £ shop and the cashier was doing something with his till. Getting a new till roll I assume. He looked at me as if to say I'm ready now so I started to walk over, next second I feel this tap on my shoulder so I turns around and this women who was behind me in the queue says to me, Go on you can get served before me if you like. As though she was doing me a favor. My reply was. That's very kind of you, seeing as i was infront of you in any case. Honest.
