I'm in a queue
Rob is late for the programme because there was such a long queue for coffee!
A queue is a line of people waiting for something to happen. We see queues in amusement parks, the supermarket and at the cinema when a new movie is released.
To form in a line while waiting (often followed by up). To arrange (data, jobs, messages, etc) into a queue.
Please hold the line so as not to lose your place in the queue.
At the train station, once I had figured out where the queue for tickets actually was, I began the long wait.
I didn't arrive in Harbin until very late, and the queue for taxis was already extremely long.
Japanese and British people usually wait at a bus stop in a queue.
Not long after I joined the queue, a man approached and asked if I wanted a taxi.
This implies a fun and relaxed working atmosphere where team achievement is highly valued, communication is extremely important and traditional 3-hour meetings have been replaced by informal chats in the queue for coffee.
People queued to buy Diablo 3.
I talk to everyone – even people next to me in the queue.
Look the queue is so long, I will not stand here.
This boy jumped a queue.
One of the reasons I prefer travelling by train is that there are often long queues at the airport.
