How do you feel about queuing?

If you’ve been to Britain, do you think it’s true what Tess and Ravi said – are the British good at queuing? 

How about queues in your country? Do people queue up politely or do they jump the queue? Do you jump the queue?

We’d love to hear from you - write your answers in the comments.

I like this system"queuing" because work can be done in a proper and smooth way.The man sitting inside the counter can give service one by one standing in the queue timely and quickly as there is no crowd gathering in front of the counter. I had to stand in a big big queue when I went Europe.But I did not felt boring. In our country some people like this and some jump the queue.New generation is liking this system.

In my county queues are very long and it is  boring to stay in a queue if my friends are not with me. In Ukraine it isn't polite to jump a queue but people do this quite offen.
As for me, I hate queuing because I'm always  very busy and can't wait, so I'm one of those who jumps a queue. Although I know it isn't polite.

In my country we get tickets with numbers son we all know when it's our turn.
Usually, only old people jump the queue saying that they're ill just to avoid waiting :) so we let them go first .

I've never been in Britain but I hope to visit this country.
I also hate queuing! I get nervous when I must wait for something. I never jump the queue, because it is bad manners. I hate people who don't wait for their turn and jump queue.

I like queuing, because I think it is good and fair way for getting something. I always do something for entertaining myself during the standing in queues, for example playing a game on my phone or talking with my friend or reading some books or something like that. otherwise it would be boring. we have to respect the others rights when we are standing up in a queues. I was in some longest queues for example when I was in Rome the queue for buying a Colosseum tickets was too long, I guess there was more than 600 people in line. it was so tidy queue. but I was so excited and I was looking forward to visit the Colosseum. it makes me do not care how much the queue was long.
unfortunately, it is difficult to see any tidy and organized queue  in my country. almost of people would jump the queue, and push each others for being in the begging of line, do not respect to each others,  it is not justice. I hate it. It is so embarrassing that they think by themselves that they are so smart that they can trick. they are so pleasure with doing that.
my mother always blames me that I treat so awkwardly  and stupidly when I stand up in the queue in politely way.
