    Smart thinking or line cutting?

    While waiting in line for the Hungry Bear I noticed that there were quite a few people waiting in line for one register while another was also open but it seemed that most people in line didn't see it or didn't know she was open. I was at the end of the line and saw the CM just standing there waiting for a guest and I took the initiative and went over to her and placed my order. When other guests saw me, some were shaken out of their comatose state of mind and moved over to the line I just went to while others remained and I could feel their dirty looks and whispered profanities. (@#$! line cutter was one of the nicer terms used).

    Now my question is this. If you see a line that is obviously shorter (or in my case non-existant) am I in the wrong for jumping to that line? Should I stand and wait untill the CM starts calling people over? Should I get a Scooby snack for being smart and going where no guest dared to go?

    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?

    Smart. It's not like jumping to the other side of a register where there's only one side in use (and that in itself is borderline cutting/smart)

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Smart thinking. Because everyone else is being a sheep and not paying attention doesn't mean you should join in.

    You dirty son of a b-. Oh wait, wrong thread.

    You're super smart and must have very strong neck muscles to hold up that noggin! If sheep can't see an open window, their loss. Fight the power.

    Migo,

    Does your dog work out a lot, or just do low carbs?

    Smart. Or rather common sense, which in many cases is also in short supply at the park, as evidenced by the ignorant comments you heard from the "sheep".

    I say smart, but when I did this last year, it was the CM who told me I was line jumping and that the first person in the other line was the first person he would help. Put me in my place!

    Re: Smart thinking or line cutting?

    I alway keep a role of nickels in my pocket (insert unflattering comment here). When I see a CM about to open a register I rip open the wrapping and toss the nickels to distract the people already in line. They scurry to pick up the nickels while I jump to the newly opened register and place my order. You see, people get a couple of nickels and aren't that mad when you jump to the front - they feel they got something out of the deal.

    The "sheep" are just upset they didn't think of it first. The ones that follow you to the new shorter line are smart and adaptive, the ones that don't, well, aren't.
