Am I The Only One Who Has No Patience To Wait In Line Anymore? [OPINION]
I am trying to figure out the last time I waited in a long line. I am talking about waiting hours and hours in line to purchase something. I can only think of two instances - both involve Guns N' Roses.
The first was waiting for tickets to go on sale for a GNR concert. I stood outside the Genesee Valley Mall (now Genesee Valley Center) for hours. Unfortunately I was forced to evacuate (along with all of the other people waiting in line), after someone was stabbed. True story. I did end up with tickets, so it worked out for me - not so much for the guy who got stabbed.
The second time was waiting to purchase the GNR double album releases of 'Use You Illusion I' and 'Use Your Illusion II'. Luckily, there was not stabbing at this event, and I was able to buy the albums.
Obviously the days of waiting in an actual line for music or concert tickets are long gone. You don't even have to wait in line at a grocery store anymore if you don't want to. What a time to be alive when you can pay someone to shop for you. Is everyone impatient these days, or is it just me?
All of this brings me to the point of what is worth waiting in line for anymore? Is it really a chicken sandwich from Popeye's? Is it a special toy for your kid at Christmas time? I won't do it, I have no patience (GNR pun intended) for long lines. If I see a line for anything - I am out.
Let me know if you don't mind waiting in long lines, I will give you my drink order and holiday shopping list now.
