The average American spends two to three years of their life waiting in line. If you add in the time spent waiting for a phone call, a job offer, your wife to get ready, etc. -- you're now talking about a hell of a long time spent waiting. Let's face it, waiting is no fun, but today we can be connected with mobile devices and actually get work done, or entertain ourselves. There are even new mobile apps that may make waiting in line a thing of the past. Just queue up virtually and arrive at the time specified, no physical presence necessary.
That day cannot come soon enough.

This playlist features 31 songs that are the perfect addition to your iPod. You can listen the next time you find yourself with a delayed flight, at the DMV, or waiting in line at the Apple store.
