ARLINGTON -- There's nothing quite like the feeling of getting something for free. But the reality is, even things that are free have a price, and if time is money, then some chicken sandwich lovers just paid a hefty fee.

The North Arlington Chick-fil-A just re-opened Thursday after being closed five months for renovation.

"We doubled the parking lot size and totally re-did the drive-thru, so now it's more efficient," explained Chick-fil-A public relations specialist Adriana Desiderio.

The grand reopening brought out a few campers looking to be one of the first 100 served at the new digs, something that guarantees them free Chick-fil-A for a year!

But this got us thinking -- what won't people camp out for?

Long lines and tents have become the norm with Black Friday and Apple fanboys and girls are known to be a tad bit obsessive.

Whenever a new Star Wars flick is released, you can count on fans coming out in full force.

Here in Dallas, people waited in line all day for a chance to check out J. Cole's first-come, first serve $1 admission concert but most were left dreaming.

So the answer seems pretty simple -- it looks like we'll line up for pretty much anything and hey, why not? The Chick-fil-A campers are proof that good things come to those who wait... and wait.
