In the food industry, especially fast-food, the wait is one of the biggest problems companies could face. That’s why big chains resorted to psychological theories to trick consumers’ mind in order to make them feel that the wait is shorter. By comparing the three big chains, McDonald’s, Starbucks and Tim Hortons, this article demonstrates how companies use a similar or different hypothesis to come up with various solutions to this problem. However, it’s unclear if they succeeded in solving the problem or not. One thing that is clear from the description above is that all three branches focus one reducing the waiting lines for solo costumers, and not for groups. In maister’s paper, one of the propositions he made is solo waits seem longer than

Tyler Griffin Mrs. Crochetière ENG4UR Tuesday, January 6th, 2016 An Examination of Impulse, Procrastination and its Consequences in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet American playwright Maxwell Anderson once stated in his essay, Off Broadway, that, “the story of a play must be a conflict, and specifically, a conflict between the forces of good and evil within a single person.” The most memorable characters in literature have dealt with struggles both internal and external, in terms of either heroic or cowardly means. In William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet, the title character uses either procrastination or impulse to deal with conflicts resulting in devastating consequences. The protagonist’s urge to act upon impulse and the resulting deadly outcomes speaks to Hamlet’s lack of forethought and even his fleeting madness. In contrast, Hamlet’s continued procrastination draws on many of his conflicts eventually resulting in an overabundance of spilled blood.

It has received a lot of research attention and is well-accepted by researchers. It has become a theory for explaining how people making decisions regarding different behavioral options. According to Bauer (2014), “Individual motivation to put forth more or less effort is determined by a rational calculation in which individuals evaluate their situation” (p.

When the consumer is waiting alone and have nothing to do, especially in an unfamiliar facility, the feeling of boring, uncertain about waiting time, stress and anxiety will be increasingly enlarged with time passing. Queuing also seems more burdensome if people feel physically uncomfortable. Moreover, because of a fear of “been forgotten”, the senses of “get started” of customers are fervent. It is claimed that the anxiety level is much higher while waiting to be served than it is while being served, even though the latter queuing will be longer (Lovelock & Wirtz, 2011, p.267; Maister, 1985).
