Waiting for something you want; feelings about where you stand in relation to others; or whether you will get what you are seeking. There might also be feelings about what you deserve, or what you can allow yourself – i.e. maybe you feel other people deserve more.

End of a queue: Feeling left out, unconsidered, forgotten; putting oneself as not important, being late or not a lot of hope or even feeling last.

Orderly queue: This suggest feelings of consideration for others and that you have respect for others rights.

Disorderly queue: Shows feelings of the strongest win, or those who wish to grab and push their way in without regard for who was there first.

 Example: I was going to make a trip to London. My mother said she would pay my fare – she died two years ago. She packed my case and laid 5 pence on top of the clothes. I set off to the station. stood in a long queue for my ticket. When it was my turn to pay I opened the case for the money only to discover in place of the money was worthless scraps of paper all torn to shreds. I was unable to make the journey.

Example: ‘Yeah, yeah, you love me. I’ve got it. Yes, sure you love me. Sure, I understand. Join the queue. I’ll believe it when I see the payments. I’ll look it up next month when the accounts come in. I’ll see what you paid in. Okay love? See you.’

Idioms: join the queue
