When I was 14 (1981) I was dragged out of bed at stupid o'clock when my dad took me to Manchester to queue for Springsteen tickets for The River tour. He needed 2 people as there was a 2 tickets per person limit and he wanted 4 tickets!

Having been raised on Springsteen, it's no surprise that I'm a huge fan now!
 
The day after my A levels finished ie my last exam, my dad dragged me out of bed v early, drove me to liverpool and made me queue up for our family passports which were needed to go on a family holiday the following week. There had been a strike at the passport office and so there were queues around the building and lots of passports were stuck in the system. I was there for 8 hours, totally pee'd off.

I've also queued to get into countless clubs.

Oh you reminded me about getting a visa at the US embassy (when you needed one) "come back at 4pm" i was told.they tell everyone "come back at 4pm" and then opened a small hatch window leaving everyone to queue in the rain to get your passport back !!!

I also failed to get into Star Wars the first time we queued up and had to go and queue again the next day.

Round about the same time we queued to see Superman as well. You'll really believe a man can fly, apparently.

Banksy ... about 4 + hours. But I felt that was part of the whole experience anyway! (you would be depressed if you thought otherwise).

I've queued for other things too ... sales ... I remember when we were just about to buy our first house and we needed a fridge going and queueing outside the John Lewis sale to get one.

Nothing apart from the odd bus. Never. Ever. I refuse to, on principle. Especially anything which is supposedly "noteworthy". ;) If it's worth my attention, I will go in my own good time. If it's closed by then, they can fack orft :biggrin:
