Waiting in lines! It's an American tradition. If you are like most of the country, you will wait in a line today. Use our handy guide to figure out what line it will be:
1. I am gonna get my vote on!
Congrats. You will probably wait in a long line in a gym, an auditorium or some other inoffensive, municipal place. Your prize is a sticker and the warm glow of completing your civic duty.
2. I live in/near a city affected by Sandy
Sooo, you might be waiting on foot or in a car in ridiculously long gas lines. Grab a red canister for extras and pull your coat tight, because lines in the Northeast look awful. Your prize is a few gallons of gas that cost more than if you had gone to a jewelry store and asked them to fill your car up with diamonds.
3. No seriously. I live(d) near where Sandy hit and it's not funny.
If your power is not back on, or you had to evacuate, or you're without food and water, you may be waiting in a line for basic provisions. Um, no joke here. We are thinking about you.
4. My life is perfect, and I have little to no need for a wider set of priorities.
You may be waiting in a line for the iPad Mini! Lucky you! We bet you have an iPhone and/or an iPad to occupy you while waiting to purchase a device a little smaller and/or bigger than your other device(s).
5. I am hungry.
You may be waiting in a drive-thru line.
