    Nasty queue habits..

    Do you ever lock eyes with the same person as they switch back and forth, over and over in a queue to the point of awkwardness? Or inadvertently grab the railing only to touch a stranger's hand retreating yours back in horror? OH!!! EXCUSE ME!!....

    Or overhear a namedropper bragging what a big shot AP they are.."I've been to Club 29"

    Or listen into a conversation as they say things that are completely inaccurate and you grit your teeth as not to intrude and scream "THAT IS THE MARCH HARE, NOT BUGS BUNNY YOU NUMBNUTS!"

    Just curious...any more..

    I've had to bite my lip before. But sometimes I haven't. For example when a couple is making out in front of me in line, I've been known to loudly state my pride in the fact that I don't feel the need to publicly mate and force others around me to gag. Although I bet that the couple in question was gagging because their tongues were so far down each other's throats. Most of the line touching that goes on in my world is where rambunctious kids are running around and bumping into my legs.

    I didn't do it, but someone did it to me once. We were on the escalator back to the car in Mickey & Friends and me and two of my buddies were trying to convince our other friend that Mayor McCheese from McDonalds actually did exist. He wouldn't believe us. Then the lady in front of us turned around and said, "There was a Mayor McCheese and he did in fact exist. I guess she was the one who was listening to our conversation and couldn't stand not saying anything. It was pretty great.

    Another time I was listening in to a conversation while in line to get Park tickets. It was a father and his 8ish year old son behind me. The father asks, "What is your favorite ride at Disneyland?" and the kid replies "The one with the frog where you go to hell and it's hot!" I almost busted up laughing right there, but I had to contain myself. It's funny cuz it's true

    Exclamation crazy antics....

    1. We listen to the walls in selective lines (SM worked fantastic when the line was out the building) and pretend that we all heard cool sound effects. Then we would watch as everyone behind us would listen to the wall in the same spot . Ahh, good times

    2. I don't like it when people touch my hand on the handrail. I tried to explain the rules to one guy: that if it is on the right hand side then it is my rail. He tried to weasel his way out of it by saying it was HIS right hand side as well, but I wasn't buying it. I offered him the handrail to my left, but he only looked at me strangely for a moment, then he put on sunglasses and didnt' return my perpetual stare for the rest of the line.

    3. When I was younger, I used to get alot of girls hitting on me in line. I found this MOST distastfull for many reasons: a) I don't want to include them in the final count I give the attraction host. b) They are one more obsticle in my way of the perfect seat. and c) I don't appriciate them telling me to stop following them at the end of the night. Line hook ups may be fun whilst in the heat of the chamber of destiny, but it can get ugly real fast. Especially when the stupid broad looks in the eyes of Mora.... stupid broad..

    We like to make up stuff in line and see who bites! Then when we are corrected by someone who knows the real history, we just make up more things. It's great to hear that very knowlegable person sigh.

    Not quite a "queue" habit but love overhearing random conversations in the park. On a trip in September a few years ago, overheard a nice family discussing their plans for the day: "First we will ride Splash Mountain, then on to the Haunted Mansion, over to Big Thunder and finish up on Space Mountain!"

    Was it wrong for me to SOOOO want to let them know that not one, not two, not three but all of their planned rides were closed?

    :devil:

    That only happened to me once when I was a teenager... I was allowed time free of family on vacation... But of course she was with her "stoopid" family... But from the look in her eye, she really wanted to ditch them and her kid brother and run away with me...

    We start cheesy porn music when we see people making out
    "Bom chicka wahhh wahhhh"
    or sometimes my friend starts singing 'Let's get it on' by Marvin Gaye
    Don't forget about the people that hit you from over the rail with thier bags as they walk the queue

    I sometimes find it interesting to put down my camera and start making out with the next person in line. Their kids usually go with it, but the Husband seldom does, he'll watch me grope his wife for about a minute in shock and then I get decked. Beats watching the safety video. You just excuse yourself and pretend to be blind or something.

    OOH! My sister and I like to stand behind them (one girl per 'maker-outer' - is that even a word?) and make funny faces. Like this: And usually the skank sees and gives us a dirty look, and we give her another one of these. She tosses her hair extensions and usually says, "What EVERRRRRR", which makes us bust up laughing, like this . It certainly ruins the moment.
