If a tree falls...

Yes, if a tree falls in the woods, a man is to blame.

Went in to a Dunkin Donuts to get some coffee.   Four were in line to get something including me.   A person at the counter, two girls side by side, and then me.  The space between the two girls and the person at the counter was wide enough to drive my truck through.  I knew they were in line but it was all I could do to not say 'Are ya'll in line or are you just taking up space?'  Don't you just hate it when someone leaves a gap big enough to drive a truck through when you're waiting in line?   I was darn near out the door!  And of course there's the person that's never ordered donuts before taking a minute to select each donut to fill out their dozen!

Not really.

What I hate are stupid non-centralized/non-single queue lines.  No matter which line I get in, it is almost always slower than whatever the average is.  Is it really that hard to have a single line design?

Communist much?  :o

On average, you should be in just as many fast lines as slow lines. The fact that you almost always perceive you are in the slower line is an indication of your ungratefulness when you are actually in the faster line. It's the selfish human nature that wants to be first preventing the single line design. Consider road construction. When the interstate gets pinched down to a single lane, the traffic line will move faster for everyone the further from the bottleneck everyone gets into a single line. But what happens? People in the back race ahead in the soon to be closed open lane, trying to break in the line, trying to be first, trying to minimize their wait at the expense of everyone's wait. This slows the line down for everyone.

Many shorter lines seem better than one long line to consumers. And then there's the matter of choice in a democratic society. Choose your own line and your own destiny, or have no choice and be herded into a single, socialistic line? A few places do the socialist thing; Old Navy, Barnes & Noble, etc.

I'm with Max on this one.  Even if a line appears shorter in say like Food Lion or Walmart (I detest going to either of these stores) something happens and it always slows down which makes me crazy and annoyed.

There are times when it makes me crazy to be in line, until I remember that I can either be in a hurry and wait or I can just wait. Either way, I'm waiting. Occasionally I choose to allow it to make me crazy, usually I don't.

It took me a LONG time and a TON of crazy to come to that realization.
