The essentials: Qeue rage.

FIND yourself getting all hot under the collar as you wait for that cashier to call next, and the person in front of you to finally find their money-off coupons? Well you are not alone.

New research reveals 65% of shoppers in the UK have found themselves suffering from ``queue rage'' in the last six months.

And almost a third of shoppers admit that they have lost their temper while waiting to be served. The study by QM Group showed that in fact far from being a therapeutic exercise shopping is driving us crazy.

Londoners topped the bill for being the most aggressive queuers and women were more likely to ``lose it'' in a queue than men.

Men from Yorkshire are the least likely to blow their top while they wait.
