This is a repost from my achieves.
It is said that people spend billions of hours waiting in line throughout the world, in order to get their things done.
What is Queue?
According to Oxford Dictionary
1.British- A-line or sequence of people or vehicles awaiting their turn to be attended to or to proceed.
A list of data items, commands, etc., stored so as to be retrievable in a definite order, usually the order of insertion.
3.Archaic- A plait of hair worn at the back.
Why do we Queue ? (Standing in the line)
Because it is polite to wait for your turn. Without Queue, there will be chaos, resulting in a further increase in waiting time.
But still, why do some people jump the queue? ( cutting the line )
- Maybe they lack discipline or
- Bringing up is not proper
- Not keeping well or
- Arrogant or
- They may miss an appointment in some other place
- May be carrying a sick child…..
One can go on and on…and surely at least 90% of the time these jumpers face the wrath of others.
Looks like animals have better queue sense than humans!
Take home message
