Well, there are many times, when people stand in a queue to pay the electricity bill, for purchasing grocery as well as purchasing tickets from the bus station or railway station. Similarly happened to me when I went to watch a movie and stood in a line for 2 hours. Before that, I had no intention to watch a movie alone, but it was Sunday as I was free from my work responsibilities, so one of my friends suggested watching a movie. It was hard for me to find the company of my friends because all were busy. Moreover, online booking was impossible, so I had to stand in a queue to purchase a ticket. Luckily my mobile phone was with me, and there was a great rush, but I wanted to make use of that day, so I thought not to go back and watch the movie.
It was complicated for me to stand in a queue because of the scorching heat of the Sun as well as I have no one to company me, so I stood in a line and to pass my time I watched some videos on my mobile phone, but I couldn’t watch more because people were staring at me l. So I had to suspend all my activities, and I really waited for two hours to purchase a ticket, and when in the afternoon I got it, I took a sigh of relief. Since then, I decided not to go in person to purchase tickets, but advance booking might be a good option, so that was when I had to stand in a queue.
