Can a cardboard box take your place in line?

STupid idjiots. Cardboard box takes the place of them in line? Hell NO. Glad they got booted to the back. Standing in line means YOU personally standing in line in my book. Or you pay someone to stand in line on your behalf on a one on one basis. You arrive, he/she leaves the line. BUt no one guy in line letting others in line though. … locals.htm

I dont mind the forgot something so leave box and get something new, but if the line moves, your box stays, like a kind of “terretory marker”

“In the end, the police asked the latecomers to queue at the back of the line.”

Wow, justice done? I may just visit Lanyu

I read it as late comers being those with hostel cartons and the lot who jumped the queue.
