Who needs to be educated in the etiquette of queuing?

Queue barging is a very offensive thing to do and it normally leads to trouble, badmouthing, grumbling, dispute, low muttered complaints, and oftentimes shuffling to close gap on anyone looking to barge ahead. In simple language, it is rudeness!

We may not seem to realize, but the absence of proper queuing is a big issue, especially in places where an orderly queue is an indication of social decency. As one writer says, the root of the problem lies in more than one person wanting the same thing at the same time. In some places, the convention of standing in a nice, orderly line is absent.

Proper queuing is about fairness and impartiality and things that prevent resentment. It is the most sensible thing one can do when in a queue. Are you equal if I say, taking turns is the only reasonable answer?

I feel you there Uncle. I was just "overtaken" few days ago in the hospital by a guy who obviously did not respect the idea of "waiting for your turn because there is a queue." I felt like tripping him deliberately. The nerve!

Bad trip na naman ako kagabi. I had another encounter with people, who have no sense of propriety at all. Of course, I emphasized to them that they needed to respect the queue.

Somehow, I know who you are referring to. They are so arrogant and impolite, tapos didikit pa sa 'yo, they smell so bad hmmppp!!!

Binalikan ko ang entry mo about queing. Nakipagtarayan ako kagabi dahil ang mga impertenenteng mga pana siningitan ako sa pila, aba, aba, aba, laba-laba-labada, tarayan ko nga at pati ang cashier tinarayan ko rin dahil kalahi nya. Hate ko rin ang hindi nagrerespect ng queue. Give me five!

Knowing you, alam kong walang makakaligtas sa iyong katarayan!
