Pushing In

What is it about the Asian culture that refuses to participate in orderly queues? It seems like people lack patience to wait their turn.

Having spent the Summer at family social engagements from weddings to engagements to birthdays, I have been subjected to many queues for food, congratulating, toilets etc…  At every function “pushing in” is the norm and it gets quite tiresome.

It seems that it isn’t an age thing.  The younger generations, who would normally wait in a queue in any non-Asian function, revert to the practices of the elder. Nor is this behaviour a class thing. The more celubrious the event, the more people push in.

So as we all want to get to the front at any cost for an extra samosa, I am left wondering whether this cultural inheritance will ever change and whether we will start finding pushing in, just rude.
