    So, if I were to, say, take a detour into the kitchens of a restaurant and give my order, that won't be a problem? Just blazing a new trail!! I was hungry, and a man's gotta eat!

    I have also noticed this on Haunted Mansion and other attractions that have lines split up. I see one side filled up and the other virtually empty.

    Is it smart thinking or am I cutting in line?
    I've gotten many looks at HM when I take the other side of the split. Seems most people take the left lane, not the right. It's not cutting...others choose to follow and not investigate.
    As far as the food goes..if the CM opened up and said "I'll take the next person", but you rushed in..then it's cutting (I hate that)...but if the line was open and no one took the bait..then you were smart and avoided a long line.

    I say smart. No different than when your getting into line at Haunted Mansion and there is this HUGE amount of space leading up the left hand side and not two seconds later the CM shouts out, "Please fill in all available space."

    Perhaps the one line was waiting for both registers? Who ever is next goes to whichever register is available next. If you don't pay attention to how the line is progressing, you could find yourself jumping unintentionally.

    I agree to most of what you wrote. I see nothing wrong with using common sense, but I got o DL so often I also sprinkle in quite a bit of common courtsey....or at least I try..

    Smart. No reason for you to be a stupid little sheep like everyone else. Tough luck for them. Not your fault that they're not thinking or paying attention.

    Re: Smart thinking or line cutting?

    However; suppose you jump to the other line and the cashier all of the sudden has a problem...you know, the just getting settled in on a new shift type problems that are bound to hold things up a little.....would you expect your old place in line to be held for you? My biggest pet peave is people who leave the line thinking another is going to be faster then expect me to let them back in line when it does't work out.

    Once you're out, it's tough darts. Tell your story walking, sucka! You left...you pay the price! Don't come back to MY line expecting to get back in. No way, no how!

    Oh....who am I trying to fool. I ALWAYS let them back in.

    Re: Smart thinking or line cutting?

    If a register opens up at the grocery store just as you approach the front of the store,are you cutting in line to go straight to it.of cource not,it's just lucky timing.They're just ticked they didn't do it themselves.

    Off the subject,...ok, way off the subject
    but can I just say that the picture that Skipper has is hot.
    The outfit is totally hot.

    and now back to the subject

    Just use common courtesy and you should make it. What goes around comes around.
