Hello,
what is the difference among:
1) "I'm waiting in line at the supermarket."
2) "I'm queueing at the supermerket."
3) "I'm stading in line at the supermarket."

The context is a queue of people at the supermarket.

Thanks

    "I'm waiting in line at the supermarket." This is, I believe, idiomatic in AE.
    "I'm queueing at the supermarket." This is BE.
    "I'm standing in line at the supermarket." I'm not sure about AE, but it's not idiomatic in BE.
