Etiquette question

Queue jumping is a common pet peeve and it's definitely one of mine. But what do you do if the jumper is a little kid (no parent in sight)? The crime has been committed (and it is heinous) and you could even imagine that you're giving a valuable life lesson by setting the little shit straight, but my guess is that you'll look like a dick.

I chose to glower at the back of this kids head (and write this post).

Oh man you're a badass. Glowering at a little kid. Actually you have just given me a great idea ... instead of standing in a long queue I'll just send my little cousin to the front to buy tickets for me. No one is ever going to reprimand her.

little kids don't fight back

I would go with the...

`Sorry chap, there is a queue'...

If they get difficult, well unless it is really worth the effort, glowering is probably the way forward ;-)

they might not fight back, or not much with their tiny ineffectual little fists, but kids scare me a little.
