stalled checkout line, esp. one that was initially the shortest and
therefore ostensibly the fastest, but which was plagued thereafter by
unforeseen price checks, old ladies rummaging through purses for exact
change, people redeeming coupons, etc. Makes you want to shout "Faux queue!"
Your shopping buddy: "No, man, this one is shorter"
ten minutes later:
You: "Dude, we have been faux queued."
