R U OK HUN?People that don't know how to queue/form a line.
I was in Russia for a bit during the Summer and the queues there are hilarious, but at least you can just go "It's Russia, the place is a bit mental".
The other day I went down to Cineworld to go see Good Posture, and the place was jammed full of people trying to go see Joker. All the Joker showings were selling out, naturally, but anyway, so there's 4 touch screen ticket machines in a row, right, and as I head over to them the last person queueing there has just gone up to a machine, so hey, now I'm first in the queue for these machines.
So I'm standing there a few minutes, all the people at the machines are using the fuckin internet or something, they're all like looking at their phones and typing big codes into the machines and all this nonsense, seriously I have no fucking idea what they're at but by christ they are taking their time about it. So I'm waiting at one end of this line of machines, and up walks some cunt, doesn't even look around to see me, and just stands there waiting behind the middle of the line.
I was like, "Fuck it, one person, there's 4 machines, sure I'll just use whatever one comes next, these pricks have to finish at some point".
Naturally, the first machine that becomes free is the one with fuckface standing waiting, so fuckface goes up to it and starts ordering their tickets. Only guess what? As these people are taking so long at the machines, there's now a fucking mob of about 10 other people standing behind fuckface. Not a fucking one of them looked over at me to realise that I was actually waiting for any of the machines to become free.
Just to prove how long these people were taking, guess what? Fuckface actually gets their ticket before any of the other machines become free. I've been there about 5 minutes at this point, for real, so what did I do? I went "Fuck it" and as soon as Fuckface turned away from the machine I walked right up there before any of the other pricks could get at it to use it myself. And what happened? All these fuckin pricks start moaning at me and saying shit like "Excuse me but I think they were next" and all this crap.
So I had to turn round and say to the whole bunch of them "Not only have I been waiting there for any of these machines for the last 5 minutes, and every one of you has skipped me in the queue, but that person that just walked away skipped me in the queue". And they're all just standing there going "Just hurry up" and all this shit.
People that can't fucking queue properly. Pricks.
Just need to stick those red-tape line delineators up, sorted.One queue for a load of machines just won't work unless you have an enforcer (Connolly station has one, on Fridays at least) or you're prepared to be the enforcer. You get a mad big queue winding all over the place instead of a few neat, compact self-regulating short ones.
Its the time of the year where everyone is posting pictures of flu jabs. Please no. I never want to see or even think about a needle. Even typing this makes me get dizzy.
