RabbitMQ queues are FIFO but there are several factors that
you need to take into account:
* Messages can be requeued
* There can be multiple consumers per queue
* Multiple messages can be pushed to a consumer in rapid succession.
Deliveries can be dispatched in a thread pool and processed concurrently (this is indeed what several popular clients do)
What code produced the log above? Printing to stdout is not a very reliable way
when it comes to determining the order. Updating a synchronized collection
of some kind and inspecting it is a more reliable way.
