It's not just immigrant groups. I noticed that regular Americanized whites are like this too and these are the people I am mainly referring to in my thread.

I noticed that these people stand close to me a lot and it is especially when I am making returns. Yet, they are the ones who have the Karen haircut and act like Karens when they make the returns. I hate when they stand so close to me when it is the store's fault for taking too long to do a return. I went to Harmon's today trying to do a return and they were taking too long to do it (the cashier eventually called another cashier to open up) and this old man was standing close to me rather than before the row of cash registers. I just don't get why people who look 40 have to do this. It's rude and it's like you are reading over my shoulder. Stores need to act like DMVs, place a yellow line on the floor where "customers must wait behind the yellow line".

Is this a Jersey thing or a generational thing? Or is it because I am Indian where people stereotype us as cheap?
Ok are you kidding??? So you think white people do this? Hun I'm here to shut that s#!t down right now! I'm white, female, 30s and I ABSOLUTELY HATE when people stand so close behind me in line. So I find it hilarious op that you are blaming white people for doing this to you!! Totally racist and narrow minded. Sick.
Take your racist self somewhere else.
I turn around and give those people a dirty look.

It's weird that you say this happens to you with "older" people, I notice this more with teenagers and twenty something ordering at a coffee shop. They don't understand that the person who is actually ordering should be the only person in that area, the rest of the people on line, stay back, online, like at Marshalls. Yes, I said Marshalls.

Older (70s+) people on the other hand usually have a hard time getting out of the way because they are sometimes not as fast at the register. With that being said, older people might also be lonelier and they don't mind a legit 5 minute conversation if they are waiting to be rung up at the supermarket. Some people actually enjoy a little interaction, not everyone is a miserable F in a huge rush. Most likely we all have days where we might feel like being as quick as possible because you are having a crap day or in a huge rush, but that shouldn't be the accepted norm.

If you really see a trend of "older" 40 something all up in your business maybe it's you. Maybe you are reading into something that isn't there. The reason for people acting the way they do in public isn't about you. Where is this happening and how close are they standing?
