The Science Of Standing Around In Lines

Nobody likes queueing, it's incredibly annoying. You feel like you've been standing in line for 10 minutes, and that in that time, the line hasn't moved at all. Of course there's someone ahead of you with five different coupons. Do you really even need this sweater? I mean, summer is just around the corner. The soft spring breeze is beckoning you from just outside the automatic doors. You turn around and get out, but as you look back at the line, you see that you would've been at the register by now. Rats.
We've all spend numerous amounts of time standing in line to pay for something, and it's nobody's favourite activity, but have you ever thought about how queueing actually works? Just take a quick look at the infographic below, and you might feel differently about your queueing experience next time around.
