Well, I’m quite a patient person and my policy is to never lose my cool. However, when it comes to a super long queue, I guess it’s hard for anyone to stay calm…
The last time I had to queue was for a live football game between our national team and Thailand, a formidable opponent in the region. Actually, I’ve never been a massive fan of sports but my friends insisted me going since they didn’t want to waste a ticket. The stadium is located right in the centre of Hanoi so we must come early to secure the ideal seats. To our dismay, upon arrival we saw an extremely long line of people standing in front of the security gate already. I sensed something wrong as half an hour went by and we just stood still waiting for our turn. Even worse, some were trying to cut in line.
Getting more and more anxious, I simply couldn’t take it anymore. I went straight to their counter to inquire about what was going on. They apologized and told me there was an error with the check-in system… I felt so disappointed but there was nothing we could do about it. Fortunately, ten minutes later, the system got fixed and we eventually passed through the gate. Looking back I still feel frustrated but this incident taught me to become more patient and go with the flow when the situation gets out of hand.
