I’m a real concert freak and like a lot of bands and artists. That’s why I regularly order concert tickets. It’s often a challenge to get tickets for certain concerts, and if you have ever bought tickets with a queue, you’ll undoubtedly recognise the following!
- Okay, the counter is running. Ticket sales start at 10:00 am. Just a few more minutes and then you can finally buy a ticket! Or at least try.
- Yes, it’s 10:00 am exactly! Just select the number of tickets… Oh no, the queue’s already there. There are 70 people who were earlier? Okay, hopefully it won’t take too long…
- I’ve been waiting for fifteen minutes… Please hurry up, everything will be sold out soon!
- Would it help if I open another tab and queue there too? Or maybe on another device?
- Refresh, refresh, refresh… maybe that’s the right tactic? (tip: never do this! If you refresh you’ll lose your spot in the queue. Be patient!)
- What? How can there be 100 people in front of me all of a sudden? It was only 70 seconds ago! (Because you pressed refresh. So don’t!)
- SOLD OUT? How? Oh no… there goes my chance to see them perform live.
- Wait a minute… Yes! A few tickets have become available. But now there are 200 people in the queue. Better give up.
- Alas, better luck next time. I tried my best.
- Looks in other tab. Oh wait, I can buy a ticket here! Yes, I still scored one!
