Does the "Moun Pa" phenomenon only exist in Haiti?

Many Haitians complain others are cutting the lines in various offices while they wait for service; they think it's unfair... They call it "Moun Pa" but does this only exist in Haiti?

Banking in haiti - long lines

It may be bad customer service but is that something you would only see happening in Haiti?

Let me ask you a question:

Let's say you work in a bank and your brother walks in to make a deposit. Will you let him wait in the long line or will your get him in and out as quickly as you can?

Here is another question that is more Direct to the reality in Haiti:

You are working in an office and the Senator who got yout the job (your Parenn) sends a friend to you for help (pou w ba li sèvis), Will you dare make him wait online or will you help right away? Do you have a choice?

Would you feel guilty for doing it?

Do you think only Haitians do this sort of thing?

What do you think about that?
