Mindful Doodles #434 – Why is the queue short?

On weekend nights, the queue for the cab at the taxi stand, is usually horrendously long. Its rare to see a very short queue. People come out in full force to do their weekly grocery shopping, household goods purchases, and buying of requisites. Occasionally, people high on alcohol, drugs or urges come into the queue. They cut into the frond of the queue as they lack the good manners, patience, decency and public order.
