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 hate queuing it is frustrating. In my country, Egypt, we queue when we want to buy cinema tickets, we queue at supermarkets, in shop sales and most importantly when we want to finish some official paper...but most of our queues arent very polite, people often jump the queue and even fight to get to the front. queues can take forever and sometimes a few people give up and leave the queue. we even queue at school to buy food and snacks from the cafeteria. In the future, I'd love to see more organised queues and less fighting in Egypt..

hi, i m a new user. looking forward

Actually, I dislike queuing. I wish there's less people on the planet so that we don't need to queue up for things. In my country, a few people make their living on queuing. For example, when a public holiday is coming, they queue at the railway station to buy out tickets. If you want to travel by train, you have to buy tickets from them at a much higher price than face value of the tickets. I hate those people!


hello every one , in my country we cant sleep without queuing.

Show me the person who likes queuing! :) Everybody hates queuing but we live in a human society and politeness and care is a main features which differs human society  from animals. The more the level of politeness - the more human society is. But we should also think about the ways to avoid or reduce queue whenever it is possible. It is also the level of politeness.
