Is there anything you’d wait in line for a week to do, see, or get?

Ya, I would never wait to buy something that long. Perhaps a new medication to prevent dying, but a consumer product can wait.
 
There is nothing that would ever cause me to want to wait in line for a week to get.
 
I could never wait in a queue that long for anything if I am honest. I know of people that would be willing to do that and I think they are crazy, that is a lot to ask.

I do not even think people queued for that long to pay their respects to the Queen when she was lying in state.
 
It'd have to be a pretty hefty prize, like 10 million dollars. You bet I'd wait in line for that.
 
There's nothing I want to see or do so badly that I'd queue up for more than about fifteen minutes.

And that includes a human cashier at the grocery store.

So if you're waiting in line for 14 minutes, you walk when you hit 15? Even if you're almost to the front of the line? :p
 
There's only one thing I'd wait that long for, and it's a certain surgery, a necessary one.

I don't get in the line to begin with.

If I am by myself and go into the store for something we need and see people stacked up waiting for the One or Two human cashiers to process their order. I go find another store.

If I'm after something that can wait, it waits for another day.
 
To enroll my kids in the school of my choosing. (Camping at the school has been a thing, and is only mostly gone because nowadays you're required to register online for school choices and the system assigns you a school - if possible - from your shortlist; I know someone who didn't have any of the schools on her list and needed to enroll her daughter last moment in "any" school just to have a spot at all).
 
Anything that the has to do with technology such as conferences and events. Don’t forget conventions!
 
An entire year's worth of wages.

I'd just use five days of my annual leave for the queuing itself, and then I won't need to go back to work afterwards!

I can tell you're from a not-so-populated area. I live in the state with the highest population so places like you described don't exist.
