The Rudeness of People

I really don't understand people sometimes. I'm in line at Subway. The woman in front of me is on her cell phone, she is turned away from the counter and talking. The woman behind the counter is trying to get her attention to take her order, but can't get the cell-phone-woman's attention. So, I take half a step to put myself in her line of sight and say, "Ma'am? They're calling you," and I point to the Subway worker. She says to me, "What the hell is wrong with you? You seem to be in quite a hurry, so why don't you just go ahead of me." Then proceeds to continue to disparage me at the top of her lungs on her cell phone (she wasn't talking that loudly before, so she's obviously talking that loud for the people around her).

I step around her and say, "I'm not in a hurry, you're at the front of the line and they were trying to take your order." She increases the volume into the phone and then starts disparaging my co-worker who was with me in line about how he's probably in a big hurry too and she'll have to let him go ahead.

What is wrong with people? I didn't say anything mean to her. When I said "Ma'am? They're calling you," I was totally not upset or bothered because it's loud in there and it actually happens a lot that you sort of zone out after standing in line for 5 minutes. So it's a pretty common occurance that people will let the person ahead of them know the person is calling them.

To be nasty to me AND to my co-worker who didn't say a word, that's just stupid. I wish I could call a timeout with those people and help them see what an asshole they are being.
