    Well, if there’s a line on either side of yours, than statistics will make a fool of you two times out of three. Stand on the end, and it’s only 50-50.

    Sometimes I think that standing in line is when my ambition really gets to shine. I am fucking remarkable at this stuff. Remarkable. I have also written a song about being a queue. It is good.

    In your car, in a line for the ATMs at the bank, is it better, if you’re the next in line for either of two, to get behind one or the other? Or to hang “back” enough to get in either when one opens up. I’m not sure, but it seems like “the line” behind you would actually move faster in the long run? (Not that the folks behind you would share this belief.)

    E.G. Old Navy or Best Buy or somesuch, where the queue is held back away from the registers and each person, as they come to the head of the queue, takes the next checker available?

    I bet standing in line is often a child’s first acquaintance with the issue of fairness out in the wide world.
