Waiting in line at the airport: yours will always be slower

Does it always feel like the other line is moving faster? When you’re standing in an airport this holiday season, you’ll probably feel this a lot. You’ll have to wait to check in (unless you do this at home), wait at the airport security checkpoint, wait to get something to eat and wait to board the plane. Invariably, you will become annoyed that everyone who chose the other line is moving along at a nice clip, while you’re only moving to shift your weight from one foot to another.

There’s a reason for this: the odds are likely that the other line will be faster. Basically, it’s almost impossible for you to make a smart choice.

Check out the video below to see why … you’ll have plenty of time to think about it when you’re waiting in line at the airport.
