  • 3.5 hours when I was 5 to get an autograph from the Olsen twins. No I would not do it again. But I'm glad I had a dad willing to do it for me, cuz I doubt I'd do it for my kid lol.

  • It was maybe 30 minutes. The registers were not working and everything was handled manually and only one person was doing the work.

    It was for a return, and I do not like being in that store in line anyway cause most of the time its only one person working on register, but if it had been to buy something, depending on what it was and how badly I needed it, I would probably not wait that long.

  • When they had a job fair at the new arena in our area, I waited in line w/ my son for 5 hours! They were hiring for 150 pt/ seasonal jobs & over 2000 people showed up! I would never do that again. (I only did it for his sake) We never wait for more than 1 - 1 1/2 hrs for a ride at Cedar Point! :p

  • 1 1/2 hours at the SSI office and I guess if I had to I would do it again.

  • I think at the end of my honeymoon, I waited in line for about 3 hours to check in at the Cancun airport. Since getting home was my purpose, I'd do it again if I really had to. I have been in some really bad airport check-in lines, and some bad lines to have my passport checked in various countries' airports.

  • I waited in line 3 hours to check out at a semi annual children's consignment sale. I think I only bought $40 worth of baby things. I was with a bunch of other mommies that were friends of mine so it wasn't too bad.

  • Do you think it's easier to wait in line for a celebrity than for something like DMV?
