People Watching

An everyday guide and one family's own experience of having fun people watching

Queues - Love em or Hate them
29 October 2009 @ 11:55

There is no getting away from the fact that in England there are queues. The upside is they are great for people watching. How people react all depends on their attitude (and probably where else they think they should be) when they join the queue.

Sometimes, I can join a queue and just accept that it will take time and enjoy the people and things around me. Sometimes, (more often than I would like) I just do my nut. I must be great people watching material.

I’ve done it all, tapped my foot, huffed and puffed, looked at my watch. I have even asked people if they need help or can get help etc. It doesn’t work though, it just makes me more cross, more stressed and probably even funnier to watch. I did once ceremoniously dump my basket of shopping on the checkout and walk off. The thing is it made me feel OK for about 3 seconds but then I realised I was the idiot with no food for tea and that I would have to do it all over a again – duh.

So no matter what queue you are in – check in desk, supermarket or post office. Enjoy those extra 5 minutes to yourself and have look around.

You might see me joining the slowest queue!

I know what you mean. In the early days when we first moved here I used to get really stressed over the amount of standing around in queues here. You soon learn to relax as there's no point fighting it, you've just got to go with the flow.
