207. Never change lines even if the “line manger” tells you to do so because it’s faster… they lie.

“There is more space in this line.”

“You are not fooling me dude.”

“… Okay? But really. There is more space in this line.”

“Well… I’m standing here, that’s the fastest way.”

“?”

True.

Well you’ve probably been in line and then all of a sudden you see that the line next to you moves faster. So you change lines. PWND. Now that line is slower. So you shift back. Then after a while you’ve been in a five-minute line for one hour. What’s wrong with this picture?

There are of course exceptions.

Well, the thing is that you have to stand by your choices. If you choose badly then at least you’ve made a choice… or something.
