Tough guy

Scene : A huge line up at Sobey's North street.
Scenario : Some issue with the cashier's computer causing a SNAFU. A loud, condescending baby-boomer starts mouthing off, getting personal with his comments about the kid at the cash and this infects a few of the other retirees in the line-up and they start in. A forty-ish guy, tall, looks like he might have been a boxer, steps aside from the queue and says, in a surprisingly soft and articulate voice, to the boomer, " Hey.You.Are you headed to the airport with that shit? Pipe down." Then he turned around and joined the queue, some of which was delighted and some of which was, well, TOLD. A real tough guy is cool. And worthy of love. Well done!
