4 hrs in line outside EB games across Eaton Centre to get a video game during COVID.

2 hours outside in lineup to get into Dollarama to get the $4 night light posted in Hot Deals.

Walmart - 2 hrs
I initiated a return online for that hand dryer from RFD. They never sent me a shipping label so I went to the store (another line up) to return it. They could not process it because I already started a return. After 2 hrs, I managed to get someone to cancel that online return so that I could go back to the store and stand in line again to return it.

I’m using my valuable time wisely waiting with a whole bunch of other people outside rather than staying at home all day every day. Priorities.

I've lucked out so far and the longest wait I've had is 30 minutes at the waste disposal station in Milton.

No problems with phone calls yet.

About 1.5hrs on hold with BMO a few weeks ago. Agent apologized tons and was really helpful. Either than that... I've not had long lineups for anything pretty much. I grocery shop at Metro which is empty pretty much (forget Costco or Walmart... no way in hell i'm waiting) or Shoppers Drug Mart which is usually empty as well where I live.

I've been lucky. Longest wait was 30 minutes, to get into No Frills.
Been to Costco three times. Average 20 minute wait to get in, which is WELL worth it, since shopping *in* Costco is so much nicer than it ever was, due to the limited number of people inside. I'd be very happy if Costco makes this a permanent change.
