queue

Ability to queue is the mark of civilization.

I was standing in a queue in front of a two-machine ATM. This lady barges in and positions herself closely behind one ATM. I explained to her a single line makes more sense for FIFO service, besides it clearly had a single yellow line behind which we were supposed to wait.

She arched her well plucked brows and gave me a disgusted look in return.
