Rude or entitled?

I was in line waiting to vote, and yes everyone expects to wait, the people in line where all very nice and patient, but I have one question that I am hoping someone could answer....

Everyone knows that one must be patient, one knows one must allow small things to occur while waiting.

It was approximately 7:45 Tuesday night when a crowd of people were standing in line waiting for their turn to vote, when in came this woman, who I assume the staff knew and rushed her to the front of the line.

Now, one person must have said something in the back, which I did not hear, but the other woman who worked there turned around and said "Yes, we discriminate."

Again, I know that some instances one must allow those things, but I did not see any reason this woman was sent to the front of the line. Was she sick? Was she disabled? By her appearance the only thing I could tell was that she was somewhat overweight. And believe me, that's not a reason to be singled out. 

But the young man who they butt in front of took it rather well, but I was hoping one of our wonderful individuals from Warminster could shed some light on this. For if there was not a good - and I mean good - reason for doing this then shame on you all for singling out someone and not being respectful to all the others.

Whether there was a good reason or not, for a worker to turn around and say "yes, we discriminate" is completely unacceptable.

very true Pamela its sad because i watched how some elderly stood waiting and no one even offered them a chair, i mean come on there were a bunch of chairs, but this woman must be known because she expected the treatment when she arrived. I really am curious as to whom she is

There are a lot of moron's out there. They are simply following the lead of the current administration.

Yes, we get it. You're very sad about the election results. But please try to stay on-topic anyway.

cyd i am very happy with the outcome of the election, I did my homework and choose the best man for the job. The subject was not about the election itself and I personally Tony do not feel most people are morons, most people are uninformed, the subject was actually about people allowing others to just walk in and get ahead of those who were standing and waiting for a bit of time. The subject is who this woman was and what makes her better then those behind her! Nothing makes her better, she is just another individual in this wonderful town we live in.

I have to question the line "Yes, we discriminate." Did anyone else hear it the same way? After all, the question that precipitated the response was inaudible.
