Isn't It Annoying...

...When you have to wait in a queue (or line) for something,
and you carefully pick out which one to go stand in,
it still turns out that you picked the slowest moving one of all!!!

Did you know:
* The average person spends about 1 Hour a day just waiting for stuff to happen.... 
* Over the course of a 70 year life, this translates to roughly 2-3 years of that life spent doing nothing else but waiting. (This is a pretty good reason to get yourself a smartphone, so you use this precious 4% of your life playing Angry Birds).
* Statistically speaking, you are much more likely to go stand in a slow queue than in the fast queue. For example, assume there are 4 parallel queues and you carefully pick one to stand in. The chance of your having picked the fastest one is only 1 in 4 and the chance of you picking a slower queue is 3 in 4. If it feels like you always end up picking the slow-moving queue, well guess what - you're right! :)
