#AtoZChallenge One-liner: Q is for Queue

Queue

(noun)

A  commonly accepted method of waiting your turn and almost always the queue you are a part of will move slower than the others, and this holds true even if you change to a seemingly faster-moving queue!

This always happens to me. Even if I shift to another queue (even after careful calculation), mine will be the slowest. And what’s worse, the queue I abandoned seems to move faster! It’s really frustrating. Don’t even get me started about people who try to jump the queue only because they are far too impatient!

Have you faced a similar situation? Do let me know. The comments section is all yours for the taking.

This is day #27 of the lockdown here in India. Hope you and your family are safe and well. Stay safe. Take care.

I have a lot of catching up to do. But I will get around to replying to all of your kind comments. I have a lot of blog hopping to do too! 🙂

P.S: Do make sure that you regularly check your spam and trash folders. Some comments end up there and have to be rescued!

      1. It’s the same here. We will be under lockdown till May 3rd. Depending on the scenario, certain selected businesses will be permitted to open from tomorrow onwards. But the majority of the people will be asked to remain indoors. Hopefully, we’ll be able to flatten the curve. The situation is gradually improving in my city. However, it’s very grim in a few parts of my country.

  1. Hahaha. If it hasn’t happened to anyone, they are either lying or just freaking privileged.
    Did you know that according to a survey BBC conducted, there is only a 25%chance of selecting the line wisely and frankly who even thinks much, they might just join the shorter line.
    Interesting post, Shweta. Happy A2Zing 🙂

    1. True. I wonder about the percentage of people who end up making that 25% choice always! I’m not surprised really about that survey results. I suck at making those choices! Thank you so much for reading. 🙂

  2. Haha. This is especially true when driving and you join a seemingly shorter lane at a signal or toll booth, but end up moving the last. Your definitions are on point! 😉

  3. Queue was one of the prompts I had shortlisted for today -but cudnt build it up well- with my City connect theme. The other queue moving faster than ours always happens at the ticket counters- be it railway tickets or movie tickets. E Ticketing has made this a nostalgia now.

    1. E-ticketing has definitely made things easier. But by a lucky twist of fate, I’m the one who has a higher chance of getting confirmed Tatkal tickets. 😀
      I like your choice of theme for this A2Z. I have given you a suggestion for animal names starting with Q. 🙂
      Thank you so much for reading.

    1. It’s Murphy’s law at its finest. But the FASTag must have changed things a bit, right? I’m not that familiar with the concept. So kindly excuse me if I’m grossly mistaken!
