    smart guy

    What's the best word (adjective) to define a "smart" person who tries to cut in a line, pretending to be unattentive?

    "Jackass" works for me. There's not a particular word for this behavior.

    The word that I actually call people who queue-jump probably shouldn't appear on this site.
