I sure I've heard somewhere that back in wartime UK and after, when
much was still rationed, if people saw a queue they would join it
automatically because they knew there must be something worth having
at the front of the queue.
The art of queuing is gradually breaking down in the UK as society is
becoming more anarchic with many foreign people and youngsters brought
up in an 'anything goes' environment.
