First come, first served

 

Today's phrase is 'First come, first served'!

 

It means that people will be served in the order that they arrive, ask or apply. This is most common in sales, restaurants, and taxis, where people line up to use a service. 

 

For example:

 

"The restaurant is so popular, it doesn't take reservations. All seating is first come, first served."

 

"There are only a limited number on sale, so it's first come, first served."
