Behind You Other People Exist: Used when people become so goal focused that they only think of themselves and their current needs such that they fail to realize that other people behind them also (a) exist (b) have goals. Common BYOPE scenarios include driving, grocery store shopping, cell phone usage, drop off and pick up car lines, and walking in public places. BYOPE can also be used as a general metaphor for how driven people relate to their subordinates.
Grocery shopping the day before Thanksgiving was a total mistake. It took me ten extra minutes to just get in the store because of all the people fondling the loss leader items and memorizing the weekly circular. I shouted "BYOPE!" and then the jam subsided when the fondlers /memorizers realized that all of us need to get our shopping done, too.
