“Why is it that Arabs can’t seem to get into lines?” – A question I have heard from expats in different Arab countries

“We do not like to be told what to do or where to go,” an Arab man answered. “I once was in America, in the the middle of Midwestern corn fields. I was on small back roads where I could see forever in all directions. I watched as a car drove to where two roads intersected. The driver could see there were no cars coming for miles. There was a stop sign. He stopped.”
