I don’t like standing in line.
You would think that most people are the same and yet I’ve seen otherwise.
The Japanese will go to Tokyo Disneyland and wait in lines all day just to enjoy 2 or 3 rides.
I’ve read that the average New Yorker spends 5 years of his entire life standing in line.
They could have picked up a doctors degree in that time.
I avoid lineups as best I can.
If I’m stuck in a line, I try to get other things done at the same time.
I’ll write a “to do” list or lyrics to a song or flirt with the woman in front of me (careful though – done wrong and it could send you to a police lineup. The worst of all line ups)!
Avoid lineup tips:
1) Don’t go to banks or government offices on Mondays.
2) If you’re going to a place that is guaranteed to have a lineup. Get there a half hour before it opens. I’d rather wait only 30 minutes that a couple of hours.
3) At airports, don’t get in the “now boarding” lineup until it’s almost finished. Why stand there in that lineup?
4) Do you take elevators?
If it’s only a few floors think about the stairs. It’ll take the same amount of time but you’ve got a bit of exercise at the same time!
Do you have any good tips on avoiding line ups?
