Americans use line much more than queue, but I think the vast majority of us know what it means and are indifferent to it being used in the place of line.

It's situational, and that guy's a cock.

I use both depending on the type of queue (Groceries store is line, theme park queue, Online queue, DMV line) I can't explain why I use one instead of the other though

I'm American and I call them lines

But I use the word queue when I'm referring to things waiting to happen on my computer, like print jobs and torrents and stuff like that

There's a HUGE difference between Americans and 'murricans.

It amazes me the amount of words Americans don't use

We use "Queue" when it's more of a list of people who are waiting for something. We use "Line" When people have lined up waiting their turn for something.

for rides at theme parks it is sometimes called queues. well actually you can use both.
User avatar #44 to #10 - qwarthos (07/10/2013) [-]
personally I do, because it makes more sense than a geometric term
User avatar #31 to #10 - oceanfrank (07/10/2013) [-]
i mean we do.... sometimes

No, most of us know that word, and a lot of us use it.
#29 to #24 - Womens Study Major (07/10/2013) [-]
Ehh. I wouldn't say a lot of us. Most people use line.

Well, actually, I've seen people use line when it's a real, physical line, like a line at the DMV. A queue i've been seen used if there is no actual line, like an online queue.

Nope, lines.

although queue is still used in some video games (like LoL)
