    1) There was only one lineup at the McDonald restaurant for all the counters/tilts. This is how the system work, as soon as the next counter/tilt become available the employee will call the most front customer in the line to go forward.

    2) There was only one lineup at the McDonald restaurant for all the counters/tilts. This is how the system work, as soon as the employee is done serving a customer, the employee will call the most front customer in the line to go forward.
