Stuff I Dislike: Confusing 'Queue' With 'Cue' or 'Que'

que

  1. Spanish word for interrogation meaning what
  2. Spanish and French relative pronoun

queue

  1. What British people call a bunch of people standing one after another as they await something ( like entry to a bus, or a movie house )
  2. What your netflix movies are stored in prior to delivery

While the utterance “I was standing in a que” inspires some level of existential examination for the bi-lingual, please, an additional ‘ue’ makes all the difference.
