There aren't many things in day-to-day life that make people angrier than someone cutting in a line. But people keep doing it anyway.

A new survey found more than one in four people admit to cutting in lines. Here are the most common strategies you can use to try to get away with it:

  1. Spot a gap in the line and hop right in by pretending they thought that was the end.
  2. Start talking with someone who's got a good spot in the line, possibly a friend or maybe even a stranger, and stay up there in the line with them.
  3. Lie to the other people in line by saying you're going to be late, so those people will let you in.
  4. Just start rapidly apologizing as they cut and hope that's enough.
  5. Go to the front of the line by pretending to just have a quick question for the staff.
