Have you ever gotten bored waiting in line for food? If so, you’re not alone!

Julian Oliver is back this week to help students figure out how to avoid being bored while waiting in those long food lines. Julian and his team hit campus to find out how boring these lines really are and to add some “sizzle” to those boring wait times.

The crew first went to Subway, where they entertained some students with cool card tricks. They then asked a student on the street who suggested that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is a good way to pass the time. Later on inside The Grid, the team tried singing the “National Anthem” with the help of some good-natured students. No one was bored in these lines!

Next, the crew headed to the Student Union, where a student admitted she was indeed bored in line and the group proceeded to play Heads Up and charades, while waiting for their food.

Over at GCBC, one student suggested dancing as an effective way to have fun while waiting in line. With that, the team was off to “dance their socks off” in GCBC! Perhaps dancing is the “best way to not be bored, but the worst way to keep the line moving” suggested one crew member.

To sum it up, some of the best ways to not get bored in line is to play charades, do magic tricks or “dance your socks off.” Now that you know, try these ideas out next time you’re getting bored waiting for your Qdoba burrito.
