    I Have No Patience For Line Up...

    I have no patience for line ups in stores.... I don't understand why these stores cannot accomodate their customers by putting more tellers on!  It's annoying and everytime you go to the 12 or less checkout, there always has to be someone there with 13 or more items! It's...

    Couldn't Do It Anyways

    My attention span is little, I'm very patient but after an hour I'm usually climbing the walls to get out of there. Never had to wait more then an hour, but will never wait for anything stupid. If I needed food/water/shelter/immunization/etc...of course yes, otherwise...

    This Better Be a Life Changing Autograph.

    I dread the day I have a teenage girl or four, and they fall in love with some singing idol, and have me haul them to the mall to get CDs and posters signed by said idol. (Will CDs even still exist then? D: ) I'm all for celebrity crushes, but good God. Standing in line for...

    I Have

    You know I have stood in lines before waiting on stuff but not anymore.  I guess if you really, really want something though you will stand in line for it.  I have learned to just Wait though.  If it is that important then it will come back around and eventually I...

    waiting in line blows. my first job way way back in the day was at an amusement park. we were allowed in for free. because i was there so often, i knew what time to beat lines for which rides. besides that, we had nights when after the park had closed the employees were allowed...

    I'm not very patient and I can get peed off waiting ages.  If it's something I want, I'll wait, but if I'm waiting too long, I'll walk away.

    It's Hard Enough Waiting In Line For Something I Want/need.

    I've by-passed stores and events and attractions simply because I refuse to spend that much of my life in lines.  But to wait in line for something you could get online or at a less busy time/place?  So not worth it.

    OOOOO Its the Worst!!!

    There is nothing worse then giving up a portion of your life to wait in line for something that you can do without. Life is too short to begin with.

    I watch people sometimes waiting for hours on end to get a ticket for a concert or a new game or a new book. If the book is just as good the next day, then I really don't see the point in staying up all night waiting for the first copy. I never understood that. I really don't...

    Normally if I get candy at a store, and I have to wait in a very long line -just- to be able to buy my candy, I get really fed up of it and I just throw it away and storm out. I hate waiting, I guess I'm just impatient that way. And I hate it when people hold you up, you just...

    Waisted Time

    I hate waiting in line for things I need like in a supermarket. I am impatient and feel like they should have enough lanes open so I can get in and out. I have left my cart and walked out of the store on occasion. I hate waiting.

    But Than Again...

    When I was little I laughed at the people who would stand in line for concert tickets, than I started doing it. Recently I would see all the people in line waiting for the Wii at my store every morning, but than I did that a few months ago. Sometimes I wait in line for something...

    I Guess Defining What's St...

    I guess defining what's stupid is sort of the crux of this question.  Concert tickets, iPhones, and seeing Santa are all things I consider stupid but many people enjoy.  I'd stand in line to get a suitcase full of cash, though.

    Coffee Is the Worst

    It's a very unpleasant experience to wait behind the many people who are as grumpy or haggard as you at 7 in the morning. And then have to pay 4 bucks for the priveledge.
