ABC Wednesday: Letter Q for Queue



When I was growing up in Borneo, many people did not queue, they just pushed their way.


 Here in Singapore, people queue for the bus.
 At the university canteen, people queue for their food.
 In fact, in Singapore, people queue, except sometimes when they are dashing to get into the train. that's not nice.
 At Camp Adair, J went up a high pole climbing on the metal rungs. Then she jumped off the top of an 18 meter pole called the Pamper Pole. She felt very brave having done that and boosted her confidence.
 Another activity at Camp Adair was archery, T enjoyed this most.


Everyone talked about the mud slide at Camp Adair. Some kids don't like getting messy. But S loved it.

One important thing they learn at Camp Adair, they all had to Queue. They queue for their food, they queued for the fun activities, they queued for the bathroom. "If we didn't queue, it won't be so fun."

Queuing has become a part our life here, even when traveling overseas we tend to queue and would be surprise when there's no queue.

I love that word - queue! Since I'm spending 3 weeks in England this summer, I'm noticing lots of British expressions lately. Queue is one of my favourites along with the word bliss. Have a great week, Ann.

When I lived in England, everyone would queue for the bus, very politely. But when the bus came everyone forgot their manners and surged forward in a mob! Often the women were the worst.

Hello Ann.
Ahh...queues...no one likes them. Here in the US, people will queue for hours on special sale days like Black Friday...it's like a stampede when the department stores open and everyone rushes ahead trying to pick up the cheapest deals. Some people have even been trampled to death! Thanks for sharing.
