Britons don't "wait in line" - we " Queue " ( we're famous for it ! )

Supermarket tills are now called 'the check out' in English. The cah register is just the machine to calculate the bill, also called the till. DUO!

Why is this nous devons and not il faut. Can someone explain the difference please?
