Have you ever noticed that when you're in a rush time and everyone around you seems to slow down? This is especially true at the airport when you are impatiently waiting to board your flight... and you can actually are making things slower when you are waiting around the gate.
According to an etiquette expert, you should avoid crowding the gate when you are waiting for your boarding group to be called because the congestion slows everything/ everyone down.
