Pet Peeve #3 - Queuing

Australian's, please take note. This is how we Poms queue:

1. Discuss what your companions/relatives/friends want in advance.

2. Stand in line by yourself. Have money on hand, preferably correct change (this is why you were taught Mathematics in school)

3. Declare in a clear loud voice what you want. You are not allowed to change your mind half way through.

4. Take your purchase and leave the queue.

Congratulations, you have queued correctly.

Do not:

* Take your kids with you, all 4 of the little brats, letting them run amok.

* Look at the display or product and wonder to yourself what it is you want. If you don't know, you shouldn't be queuing.
