There are two types of lines.
1. A single queue like at a bank or most bookstores where people wait for the next open window or register.
2. Lines that you find in a supermarket or large retail store where people can line up behind each register and gamble on what line they think will go the fastest.
And then there are the smaller stores and pharmacies that have two or three registers and no line procedures posted so that nobody really knows how the fuck they are supposed to line up causing chaos where some people have decided to start line option 1 and others cut in front using option 2 leading to queue-rage. (I’ve seen riots almost break out because of this. Granted, I’ve been the one starting said riots, but still…)
When in doubt, how do you line up?
