The Chat-N-Cut

The Chat-N-Cut is when a person encounters a really long line at someplace like the grocery store or outside of a bar. If that person sees someone further up in the line that they know, even if that person is barely an acquaintance. They’ll go up to that person saying something like “Ohhh, can’t believe you’re here!” To cut the line.

I’ve experienced this practice many times but had never heard the term until Josh told it to me in relation to waiting in long lines at the grocery store near his fraternity house in college.
