Hat tip to Tom Blackford who has informed me of six great queuing stories in today’s Guardian.
They’re a good read and have everything we have come to expect from a good queue story; the dread of old ladies tutting, the hurt caused by raised eyebrows and the stomach clenching anxiety of making a fuss.
Although causing a scene terrifies me to my very core, I think that this is a brilliant idea. I do not know if I am brave enough to do it myself, but I am definitely going to consider it when I am next at the supermarket. And as fellow Brits know, consideration is quite a big step already.
If anyone manages to do this at their supermarket please send me a report and I’ll post it up here on Standinaqueue. Hell, I’ll even make and send you a free Standinaqueue T-shirt.
