How do people in Shanghai manage to get things done and satisfy their families’ needs? Exchanging foreign currency, getting the most popular food items, finding tickets to top shows, acquiring license plates for cars, enrolling in the right schools, getting appointments with the best doctors—these are all things that often require waiting hours in line.
