A Tiny Note on Queuing

My pops read my blog the other day. And then he cut a tiny article out of the Guardian for me about queuing at Wimbledon. It was singing the praises of a properly monitored queue. In the days when queues were de rigueuer everyone strictly lined up in order of arrival and remained so even if it was a bus queue. However, times have changed and it becomes a free for all despite most people's politeness. But in those days I doubt anyone would have had to queue to get into a bar or a shoe shop. I'm not knocking queuing, just suprised at when we have to queue unexpectedly. Expected queues: at the cinema, bakery, to buy tickets, restaurants, club entrances, to use the loo. Lost queues: bus stops and train boarding.
