Sentence: If there is a line Ken can hardly contain his urge to jump in. He found true ecstasy when he took his quepulsion to Disney World. Without even knowing what each line was leading to he stood for hours, sometimes vacating a line before taking a particular ride to join a different line. Good thing he went on his own.

Etymology: queue (a line or sequence of people or vehicles awaiting their turn to be attended to or to proceed) + compulsion (an irresistible urge to behave in a certain way)
