To think that people could be standing more than a milimetre from me in the checkout queue

I was in the queue for the checkouts in M and S and turned my head to find some woman right up in my face. Why the …. did I say 'sorry' when she was clearly standing ridiculously close?

Why do people do this? Why? It doesn't make the person in front of you go any faster. I had a bloke do this when I was queueing up to get my prescriptions. I shuffled forward, he followed, till he was actually touching me! I said to him 'if you get any closer, we'll have to get engaged.' He leaped back at once.

I hate it when people start putting their stuff on the conveyor while I still have lots to put out. But I simply ask them to take it off and wait until I have finished so far the few cheeky buggers who have done this have been so surprised at being challenged they've simply picked their stuff up and waited.

I now stop unloading my trolly and give my best Paddington stare. They usually take things off the conveyor.
Once a very pushy man decided to unload his basket in the middle of my shopping. He put down a divider and just carried on.
I said excuse me, my things are still being unloaded, he failed to engage.
I got to the checkout and the first half of my shopping went through, the cashier tried to get me to pay, I refused until the cheeky man had passed the rest of my items forward, passed his shopping so I could check out in one go.
He looked so confused. Maybe he didn't shop in supermarkets often and didn't understand.
