"I only have 1 item. Can I sneak ahead of you?"

It happened again yesterday. I was in line at the supermarket. Not too much in my cart ...... just about 12 items

When a woman behind me with 1 item asks if she can sneak ahead of me b/c she only had 1 item and "I'll be in and out"

I told her no, even tho I kinda looked like a jerk. It's the principal of the thing......right?

What do you do?
