What was it for and was it worth it?
For 8 hours?
I hope you didn't need a bathroom break.
Like an empty water bottle...?
There once was a guy in a queue,
Who urgently needed the loo.
He took a used bottle
And opened full throttle;
Sighing, "Ooh, 'twas relief overdue."
Hot as hell?
Um... were the inspectors female?
They probably swabbed their hands in alcohol between inspections, so as not to spread germs.
That was so the guy being inspected would be at order arms before inspection arms proceeded.
Probably in Disney World
At the bank, I get a ticket People in line:57 Oh heeeeeeeeeeeeell no!
I think it was a queue for a concert of band H.I.M.
Way back in the old days, before all the modern ticket services were invented, I was a freshman at the University of Michigan in 1964 and stood in line at the Administration Building to get a ticket to sit in the student section at the 1965 Rose Bowl Game. My memory is that it took about six hours for me to work my way to the front of the line. I still have the game ticket stub and believe it or not, the price printed on the ticket is $6.00.
And if that line wasn't long enough, the flight out to California I took to attend the game took even longer. It was on an old model with four propeller engines and the flight left Detroit just after sunrise, had to stop in Albuquerque to refuel, and arrived in Los Angeles just before sunset.
Anyway, Michigan beat Oregon State 34-7 at that Rose Bowl Game and I still have 8mm film I took during the game to prove it!
Disney World. We had to stand in long lines for everything....I overheard a guy say: "You have to stand in line to get food and you have to stand in line to get rid of it"
Hanson concert. Wrapped around the block and then some.
Thirty to thirty-five people ahead of me.
PS4 launch at an NYC gamestop midnight release.
The government assistance line. My friends and I had a rally.
