Any UB student knows and loves Pistachio's, but we all know the struggle of waiting on a 45 minute line for the best food at UB. We know there's a line for a reason, and we know it's worth it, but waiting on the Pistachio's line is riding the STRUGGLE BUS, MAN

The majority of us know that when we see how long the line is, we consider turning away. We think to ourselves, "in 20 minutes the line will go down." wine, beer

And you wait...

and you wait...

and wait. 

Finally, you come to the conclusion that the line will never go down. So, you get in line. 

1 minute into the line...

"The line isn't even out the door today! It'll be ten minutes, twenty tops."

"This will be such a great day, I'm going to get my pasta, sit down, go to class and then do some homework. I'm being so productive!" 

5 minutes into the line...

You're starting to get angry...

"I've been here for 3 minutes, what the HELL is going on?"

"Five more minutes, and then I'm leaving."

And you start to enter the denial stage...

"...I could make this pasta myself. Why am I even here? I need to go home...

...but it's so gooooooood. I'll wait." 

10 minutes into the line...

You start getting hungry, really hungry. 

Then you realize you're extremely hangry.

You start to get a little depressed... you ask questions like, "what did I do to deserve this?" 

15 minutes into the line...

You start thinking into things, important things, like "what am I doing with my life? Do I even like my major? Why am I in college if I hate it so much?" 

"Maybe I should switch my major."

"UGH, I don't even deserve this pasta TBH, I'm a piece of trash. I can't even make it through school."

20 minutes into the line...

"I really need to calm down. It's annoying, but I'm here. I'm ready for some dank pasta and nothing is going to come in my way." 

30 minutes into the line...

You finally accept the line. You think, "I really need to calm down, it's annoying, but I'm here, and I'm ready for some dank pasta." 

"I hope I don't start uncontrollably sobbing..."

45 minutes into the DAMN line...

CONGRATULATIONS MY FRIEND! You have done it. You have persevered through the toughest, most exhausting journey of your entire college life

Now you must decide what entree you're going to get...

...because spending what seemed to be an entire century and a half in line was not nearly enough time to make such a vitally important decision.
