How To Queue Yourself Out In Romania In 2013

This is a very brief outline of the best queues you’ll definitely enjoy in Romania irrespective of being in good health or disabled. Warning: all queues are standing not sitting!

1 minute to get a bus ticket

5 minutes to get a train ticket (if you’re lucky)

15 minutes at the counter to get your shopping out of the supermarket

1 ½ hours to pay your taxes (if you’re lucky)

2 hours to renew your passport

4 ½ hours to renew your ID (I just checked that)

If you count the noise around all that, it’s a good way to spend your August 🙂

    If the place where you’re waiting has air-conditioning and some nice music playing it might not be too bad for the shorter time periods. Most of the local government offices here in New York have seating arrangements.

    • The ID situation – They don’t have it: the room is not appropriate for peak hours/periods, the seating is inexisting (some 4 chairs for 30 people standing for hours) and a loud TV playing the latest burial ceremony that made the news. Once you do make it to the counter and hand in your file, they shout back like we’re in some jungle amid monkeys. That was some fun…
