This is a question Inflated Self-Importance

Amorous Badger asks: Tell us tales of people who have a high opinion of themselves. Jumped-up officials, the mad old bloke who runs the Neighbourhood Watch like it's a military operation, Colonel Blimps, pompous bastards and people stuck up their own arse.

Working in a shop back in my student days, on sundays we opened at 11am.

On Rememberance Sunday, we would always open the shutters, observe the two minutes silence, then open the doors to the braying public.
Every year the silence would be interupted by at least one person banging loudly on the door and pointing to their watch.

Yes but you always went over the two minutes!

Jesus wept I know what you mean.
Last year we made an announcement over the tannoy involving the words 'Two minute silence', 'mark of respect' and 'thankyou'.

The music goes off in the shop and we all sit meditatively and in silence. So some idiot comes up and starts trying to initiate a stupidly loud conversation, asking me all kinds of questions while I tried to look both mediative and angry.

I don't mind if you disagree with the silence on whatever grounds, but have some respect for those that do it.

To be fair, I'm a busy man, I didn't shoot anyone
and don't see why I should have to wait around while you respect those idiot enough to take a profession involving going to places where they'll be surrounded by people actively trying to kill them.

I think we've all met one of these
Back when I was working retail there was always one who completely ignored the fact that everyone else in the store had stopped what they were doing and continued shopping in as noisy and obtrusive a way as possible.
