comment Is it correct to say “the 'following' customer”?
The literal definition of following is "coming after or as a result of". Tuesday comes after Monday (Tuesday is the following day). If Bob is behind Alice in line, Bob comes after Alice, therefore Bob follows Alice and is the following customer. I still insist that this makes sense and people will understand what you mean when you say it.

Me fail English? That's unpossible!
