A person (or persons) who disrupts the natural flow of a lineup or queue, much like Canada’s finest five-cent-piece-gracing animal would a stream. The line beaver will rear its ugly head at the least opportune time … like when you’re in a lineup. As the line beaver reaches the cashier, his or her natural instincts kick in and the dam begins to take shape. Characteristics of line-beaverism include, but are not limited to, scrounging for exact change, requesting price checks, coupon sorting, and asking long-winded questions that would be better directed to the customer service desk.
“Hey, let’s jump in the Express lineup—it’s only five people deep… oh wait a sec, (together) LINE BEAVER!
