I used to do the same thing when Florida had emission testing in the 90's. I had a BMW with CIS and while waiting in line to pull into the place I'd get out my 3mm CIS idle AFR adjustment wrench and lean it out till it started idling a little rough.
Then pull in and it would pass emissions. Then drive out the other side into the parking lot and readjust the AFR richer until idle was good and smooth. Then drive off.

That was before wideband AFR gauges existed.
