Atilla! (pronounced Ah-teel-a). Apparently this is the universal European term for someone who is being pushy and rude. I inadvertently cut off a woman in line getting onto a double-decker tour bus and I heard, "Eh, Atilla!" directed toward the back of my head. I guess maybe I was being a little impolite, but being compared to a Hun whose armies sacked and burned major portions of Europe? I think that´s overstating it a bit!
