Apologising unnecessarily and forming a queue, Just two of the unusual things we British people do!
Established as a social norm in the early 19th Century, Britain is believed to have gained its reputation for queueing during major historical events, including the industrial revolution. As more and more people gathered together in urban areas, the need for order became apparent.
Queuing is part of everyday life in Britain. Whether shopping, waiting for a bus or heading to your local chip shop you can expect to join an orderly queue!
