Skip The Q shouldn’t be nec­es­sary

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

THE Skip The Q cam­paign set up by traders in Lochee is a great idea.

The premise is that cafes and take­away stores that sign up will dis­play posters in their win­dows say­ing mem­bers of the emer­gency ser­vices will go to the front of their queue and be served first.

This is to recog­nise their time is pre­cious as they could be called to work at any time.

It is good to have a recog­nised sys­tem in place, though I would sin­cerely hope cus­tomers might have of­fered with­out be­ing prompted. Al­though mak­ing it of­fi­cial means that there should be no ob­jec­tions if peo­ple are asked to step aside.

In gen­eral we need to have a wee bit more thought for other peo­ple though and should have been able to work this out for our­selves.

Be kind.
