Queue is a better word than line. Why?
1. The line is rarely a line. It wraps around the counter like a scattered snake.
2. Euclid said the shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line. In reality, stepping into the line is sure to slow you down the most.
3. In computer science, a queue is strictly “first in, first out”. This is proof that computer scientists are out of touch with reality. The first step of developing a proper AI is making sure that others cut in line.
4. Queue is always worth more in Scrabble
