The only real exception for this is when I'm with a friend who really wants to do something, and I want to be with my friend. At that point, I'm not waiting in line, I'm spending time with a friend who happens to be doing something I wouldn't normally do. It's a mental shift.
This means there's places I like around Portland I very rarely get to eat at anymore. The Screen Door, for example, or Apizza Scholls, where it's incredibly difficult to get in unless you show up early and wait for them to open. I love the food at both places, but my life's too short to spend it hanging about for an hour to get a table. (And this ignores my current health issues, which make waiting in line almost literally impossible for me because I cannot stand in one place for more than a couple of minutes without needing to sit down.)
I can't figure out if this is utterly reasonable of me or an irrational tic on my part. I don't suppose it matters much either way. I'm happier not being frustrated by standing around, that's good enough for me.
Do you wait for things? What do you get out of it?
