Holy cow, I hate this! Also the related action of people waiting on the
platform for a subway who push their way on without waiting for passengers
to get off first.

Yeah, it's obliviousness, but that doesn't make it any less rude, because
like you said, it's the mindset that you have the right to do whatever you

Although as I believe Melissa said in another message, occasionally I do
stuff like that too. Of course--it happens to everyone--& I am v. contrite
when someone has to squeeze by me & I realize. But, really, when you have
to say "excuse me" in increasingly louder tones three times before someone
even deigns to look at you & grudgingly move the shopping cart an inch?
