What really annoys me is when you have to stand in a queue, say at the bank or corner shop, wherever, and the person standing directly behind you doesn't appear to understand the concept of personal space.
I always leave space in front of me in queues, it's more comfortable for everyone that way, yet still clear that I'm queueing. I've never had anyone attempt to take my place in a queue, just because I've left a bit of space between me and the person in front.
However, the majority of people in this country (England) seem to live in absolute dread of the fear of losing their place in the queue if they don't attempt to crawl up the backside of the person in front and breathe down the back of their neck.
I've often had people literally walk into meThe neurotically manically regimented way in which English queues step forward together is insane. I've often had people literally walk into me from behind just because I haven't followed the herd and stayed put instead of attempting to crawl up the backside of the person in front of me as soon as they step forward.
Lighten up England - you won't get served any quicker by being so manic.
