Copying Kim

So, Kim had a thing where she had people vote about whether we used to say "That's the bomb" or, "That's bomb," or if we just made fun of the people that said that. I'm copying her in that yesterday at enrichment, I forgot to get utensils, so I went back up and reached in front of someone to grab a fork. While I was doing that, I turned to her and said "Sorry, I'm not budging in front of you, I just need a fork." In which like, 30 people were like "Budging, I've never heard that word before." And then went on to talk about how they had heard of "cutting" in line, but never budging.
So, what do you say?

Yeah, budging in line is new to me. It seems that on this side of the country we learned proper line etiquette on the playground in first grade. If someone didn't know their place in line, others would bark, "No butts, no cuts, no coconuts!" Because that always made so much sense...

budging is a NY/Eastern (???) word. I'd never heard it until we moved here. I grew up with "butting in"
