Is this socially acceptable?
I got number 62 at the deli counter, saw that they were on number 55 and waited my turn for about 10 minutes. When my number was finally called, some lady runs up and goes "oh, I missed my turn." The deli worker asked what her number was and she goes "46." Instead of telling that lady she was out of luck, she helps her even though it was my turn and she was late.
Is it acceptable to miss your number and come back? I understand if it's a number back and they missed hearing it, but it was probably a good twenty minutes they were off by.
