    Really? I usually mow down pedestrians, punch my bus driver in the nose, jaywalk daily, throw my own poop (I don't poop dog poop, not sure why PNWesterners do...) at people's windows, and line cut everyone. In short, I'm an asshole. I guess that's too much to ask in the PNW. Sad, but maybe not so surprising.

    Pussy. You should have said "Hey asshole! I was here in line before you, now wait your motherfucking turn!". Alternatively, you could have said to the clerk "what the fuck!?!? Was I not standing here asking you for some Pliny?". Manners are overrated in a world full of assholes.

    You know that saying "every problem is a nail when your only tool is a hammer"?

    Insert "asshole" in there somewhere, and it's probably pretty applicable to your attitude.

    I would have politely reminded the store employee that he/she dealing with me before the other "gentleman," and that he/she should finish with me before helping the next customer.

    Then I would have asked her for all the Pliny the store had.

    I have a similiar story:

    The other day I'm at WHole Foods and I know they just got a Pliny shiipment. There is none on display. So I take my cart over to the cheese counter to see if they have any behind the counter.

    I am waiting patiently as some other guy is trying to figure out how many he wants. I can see that the employee is frustrated with him as well.
    I was going to buy 20 bottles. I had a group of friends from BA coming over and I know a number of them had never tried Pliny.
    So while the other guy is still trying to figure out what he wants, the employee gives me a look like "tell me what you want while this guy figures out what he is doing.". I figure I will leave him a few bottles so. I ask for 15 bottles. The employee puts them in my cart. I say thank you and start to leave.
    While I'm leaving, this guy who still doesn't know what he wants, starts giving me the stinkeye.
    Serves me right for being nice. Next time I will take all of the bottles.

    Oh boy! Well, I can see where people have different manners in different parts of the country. I live in New Jersey, and now I know why things are said about this state. It is fast paced, crowded, most with out manners, etc.

    Of course people will be fine with that, but not to be really too deep, it is not fine at all. My parents and grandparents did NOT teach me to act disrespectful, but honorable. I can not expect that at all of course but whatever is all I can say.

    For me I love to share beer with others, I do not seek out beers, hyped or not. I let it be natural and that is more enjoyable. I do for others with total heart, with no expectations.

    Check the way your state treats same sex couples and immigrants and that let us know if you still believe your state is civilized.

    I honestly don't think you would have been out of line or rude or anything like that at all to say to simply say "Excuse me, I was here first." to the worker at the store and the person who stuck his cart in front of you. I'm not saying start an altercation by any stretch of the imagination here... but man up or something.

    I've had "free reign" of a desirable beer before and I've always left a few behind for somebody else. BUT, if I come back a few days later and it's still sitting on the shelf I always help myself again. I just can't bring myself to wipe out the shelf. I'd feel like a dick.

    Nah, I think it's "every problem is a nail when your only asshole is a hammer"?

    On the real though, that's pretty lame. On the bright side, you got 4 bottles of Pliny at one store, which is more than I can get at any local store, but man that guy was a dick. Even if none of my stores had limits, I wouldn't do that shit, deprive other craft beer enthusiasts of the glory of Pliny. The almighty beer karma will get him back.

    Read all my replies before making a comment like that...as I mentioned (if you read the thread) I'm slim no never quiet in these situations. It actually makes my wife pretty uncomfortable actually when these types of things occure and I open my mouth; HOWEVER, I knew the shipment was no more than an hour old, so figured I was in the clear...love all you keyboard tough guys. ;-)

    Since I have a beer shop with no Pliny limit, I don't know what this feels like...But if I were in your situation, I would have politely said "Bitch, you were helping me first"...Then proceeded to buy my 5 or whatever then say to the guy, it's your turn now and be on my way...

    I am not a tough guy by any means. I have no problem admitting that. But i don't think simply saying 'excuse me, my turn' is going to ruffle anyone's feathers. You don't have to throw the guy in a figure 4 leg lock... but it was your turn. Say so. That's all. If the guy cocks his fist and the clerk agrees with that, then so be it.... the Pliny is his. But it is probably not going down that way if you just say something.

    Are you frustrated with getting just 4 PtE? Rough deal I guess. As for the guy who cut...say something in a civilized manner. I know, you've already stated you knew there was enough....so again, are you complaining about getting just 4 PtE?

    I apologize. It was a mistake on my part for a number of reasons. 1.) I had the wrong poster (I thought he was a guy from New Mexico I was talking to earlier) and 2.) It had no business being in this thread anyways. My bad. Apologies all around.
