Sentence: Albert is obsessed with being first. Whether it’s a new movie or the latest electronic gadget he just has to be at the front of the line. He’ll spend days camped out for concert tickets. His friends have taken to calling him queueBert. Perhaps this mania stems from the fact that his mother worked for the railroads and he was born in a caboose.

Etymology: queue (a line or sequence of people or vehicles awaiting their turn to be attended to or to proceed.) Bert (short for Albert) a play on Q*bert an early video game
