Line-Cutting the Brazilian Way: No Extra Cost Required — Only Extra Age


Companies routinely give preferential treatment to customers willing to pay more, sometimes much more. And one very coveted perk is line-cutting, of course. In Brazil, things are no different, except for the fact that when it comes to supermarkets, banks, post offices, government agencies or any other place where people wait in line for the next available cash register or service window, the law requires they provide dedicated lines for those 60 and older.
