    It Depends

    If there is one poor soul who got unexpectedly swamped, that's different. I only get really pissed when i see people standing around talking while the lines get longer.

    Don't Like

    I'm one of those persons who doesn't like waiting in long lines. If I see a long line, and think it's going to to be a very long time before it ends, I'll just go home, no matter how much I want something.
