when you fall in line and the line is so long. There are more than 100 people. The service is long. And you have been on the line for hours, when it is almost your turn, like 5 or 3 people before you, the window was closed and said that they are on break. What will you feel? Here people experience that. when we have rice crises, poor people have to fall in line for the whole day for a kilo of rice and some, when it is their turn, the store will close. have you experienced the same?

Falling in line is one of the many activities that the University of the Philippines made me appreciate (involuntarily). There was a time in college when people would wake up very early just to be the first one to get in line, and if you're late, expect that you will be meeting a quite long line. With regards to your experience where the window has closed because of break, I have to say that in a way something like that happened to me where I was waiting for my turn to withdraw, then came my turn and the atm went offline. Kinda energy-consuming emotion overwhelmed me.

as they say UP is for University of Pila (falling in line) I know what you mean (after all we studied on the same University) but me, nah I don't fall in line there (specially when the new registration office was in front of Biosci.. ) I discovered that I had a fraternity brother inside and would always ask for help from him, I really hate lines, or sometimes before I fall in line I look around if I knew someone who is on the line and if I do know one, I would approach him or her and chat and ask if I can be with her on her spot

If I am waiting for so long and the person in-charge of selling me those rice would go for their lunch break and to be sure of it if they will give me a number to be back in the same line so that after there break I could take the rice that my family needs and I am thankful that my family never have this bad experience in life......

Yes it happens a lot to people here with the shortage. as for me I really hate falling in line. When I was still in the University and during registration time, there really are long lines, line for registration, line for confirmation, line for subject slot, line for payment. line for everything! I hate it! Good thing I have a friend in the registration office. I just ask him for help and I don't have to fall in line.
