Don't be surprised if you see a Brit in front of you leave the queue and walk off, they can't stand in queue for more than two minutes, says a new UK survey.

Two in five reach breaking point after queuing for just two minutes, reports the Daily Express.

A poll of 2,000 adults found that 66 percent even give up on purchases after getting sick of waiting in the line.

And the wait gets tougher for food and drink outlets. And if there's a supermarketqueue, most wouldn't even walk into it.

While women wait for 12 seconds longer than men, 18 to 24-year-olds will stand two minutes longer than those 55 to 64, says researchers Barclays and Barclaycard.
