Re Larry's comment that 'They budged' is not acceptable...
"They budged" is perfectly normal here in Madison, at least in the school
system. The first year my daughter was in school I tried to correct her on
this usage, but soon realized that all the kids in at least 3 schools here
use it, meaning they cut in front of us in line. I would have said "they
cut in", but now I also say "they budged".
