I really, really love it when I'm in line waiting for a customer service type person (CSTP) to assist me and the CSTP completely bypasses me by speaking to a man waiting either in front of or behind me in line--because the CSTP assumes that I must be with the man (as noted in their surprise/apology-like mumblings when I speak up).

Because I couldn't possibly have my own business to attend to.
