Note : All Viralelt posts share the same structure. Teacher’s notes appear only on How to use Viralelt. This is done to keep “teacher text” to a minimum and avoid repetition.


  1. What typical “queue behaviour” is shown in the video? When there are two or more queues how do you decide which one to join? Do you ever move from queue to queue?
  2. Why do we form queues? If we didn’t form queues, what would happen?
  3. How annoyed or frustrated do you get when you have to queue? Do you ever decide not to do something because it involves queuing?
  4. Do most people respect queues? How do you react when you’re standing in a queue and somebody tries to push in? Have you ever tried to jump a queue?
  5. Do you ever let people go in front of you when you are standing in a queue?
  6. Can you remember the last time you had to queue for something for a long time?
  7. The main principle of queuing is “first come, first served”. Is this the fairest criterion when deciding who should get served first?
  8. Some people are prepared to queue overnight to make sure they don’t miss out on something. Would you ever consider queuing overnight?
  9. Queues at airports, supermarkets, cinemas, banks, and hospitals can be organised differently. In your opinion, which is the best type of queue organisation?
    a) Queuers join separate queues.
    b) Queuers wait in a single line (often a zig-zag) until a service point is free.
    c) Queuers take a ticket number from a machine.
    d) Queuers ask who is immediately in front of them and remember when it is their turn.
  10. Why do queues outside large chain stores during sales like Black Friday often break down and end up in chaos?


Which three of the above questions are being discussed?
