It’s no secret the Brits are fond of a queue! We queue patiently and politely in shops, at museums, theme parks, supermarkets, at the January sales, at the post office and everywhere in between!
Sadly not everyone in this beautiful country manages to adhere to our strict social etiquette. We sigh when they queue jump, tut when they hold a place for others and frown when they stand too close, but we wouldn’t make a point of complaining because that would be making a scene, and that’s another queueing faux-pas; never make a scene!
This is not ‘standing in line’, or every man for himself, in Britain it’s queueing and we do it the right way!
