    I remember being a year 7 and I queued up properly and got my lunch and had to rush it down . Then I became smart and always jumped the queue in like the middle of year 7 until the end of year 11.

    Yep, lunch queues whenever I was younger just to get my food quicker

    Usually occurs more in the older years, with their added bravery, 'rule-the-skool' attitude and disgust for the younger kids (we were all that small once!) :gasp:

    But outside of school, it's just bad manners and infuriating when it happens to you. So perhaps we should discourage that sort of thing from a young age? Or is pushing in just part of lunchtime life?

    We simply cannot just 'jump' the queue -- we are British.

    However, one must state that at the airport when queueing to board a plane, it may seem more like a compound of scavengers than the traditional social convention we see elsewhere in public society (e.g. a shop)

    Only savages jump queues. Any Briton caught doing it ought to be imprisoned without trial for treason.
