"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". Luanne von S
