The Ice Cream Queue

For the British it is a sign of democracy and fair play that they pride themselves on. They admire the patience shown and will give a quiet look of disdain at other nations that do not follow the ordered ‘waiting of your turn’. If you want to see an otherwise calm Briton get angry, then jump the queue.

You would not even have to jump in front of a queue they were in, any queue will do and it will infuriate them! It’s not unusual for a Briton to join a queue even if they don’t know what it’s for, on the principle that it must be something important and therefore worth adding to it’s number.
