What it was about

How you felt about waiting in this long queue or line.

Nobody really likes to wait in a long queue or line. Actually, waiting in queue is quite common in India because of the enormous population. It would not be more than 3-4 months ago and it was just before the Diwali . On a Sunday evening, I went to a supermall near my home to do some necessary shopping. I spent almost 1 hour  to pick up all the essential items. Then I approached the checkout point of the mall. While shopping, I noticed that many individuals were buying items for the festivals. However, as soon as I reached the checkout point, I had no idea how large the queue in this shopping mall could be! There were number of checkout points but each of those was surprisingly crowded. I could not decide which queue to stand in. At a point of my waiting in this long queue, I thought to put back my items on the shelves and leave the shopping mall. However, I discarded the idea as those items were important for me and my family. After 30 minutes or so, I started playing games on my mobile phone. I did so for about half an hour and then I noticed that the line in front of me had become smaller. On the other hand, the number of people behind me had grown to more than 50!.Approximately after  20 minutes I paid my bill.
