When an individual has a good place in line it is not uncommon for another friend, outside of said line, to ask for cuts.

However, there are some instances in which you do not want a single extra person in front of you. Because letting the friend cut in back of you (a back cut) is considered offensive to others in line, the double cut contract is established.

The double cut works as such:

1) Person A is already in line, person B wants to cut.
2) A lets B make a normal cut in front of him.
3) B then lets A make a normal cut in front of him.

The end result is a successful double cut.

Note: a double cut should not be performed when there are large, surly men carrying baseball bats or other large blunt objects waiting in line behind you.
