Pertzi's Honest Travel Hacks and Rants: Drawing the Line

Then there is the marking at the airport, just before the immigration officer’s booth. It asks you to ‘stand behind the line’. Behind / in front of are opposites. One should use behind when object A is farther away from you than object B. So, technically, the immigration wants us to stand in front of the line. If we were behind, then we would have already crossed it. For a place that is so obsessed with correct documentation, names and numbers, this is a mistake I cannot forgive.
