Mine seems to only happen after I have a sim 'dig' the dirt piles for fossils.

@DreamzInPink There was someone else reporting something similar.

Are you using mods/cc at all ? I have tested this and wasn't able to duplicate.

Here's the report: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Pets-and-Digging/m-p/7959693#M92426

Thank you..  My mods are in my game right now.  I haven't tried it without.  I have done so much moving in and out of mods, I kind of just want to play. lol  I didn't have the problem until the update/patch on the 18th though.

@DreamzInPink Mods get outdated with patches so yes, please try without before reporting bugs.

This has always been an occasional problem with queuing things especially dialogue choices. But yes it has gotten much worse with the last patch. I can't quite say if its always the case but mood changing might play a role in when a sim drops all the tasks.

Ditto.  For me it's been going on so long that I've divvied up some of my households to reduce the frustration of dropped queues.  (Line up 6-8 sims' worth of 8-actions each, and then have most of them drop?  Arrrrgh!)  I now prefer to play with no more than 4 sims per HH, & have been killing off sims as fast as I can stand (that's not fast!) to get the size down.  I no longer add pets to households, either, as sometimes-but-not-always it's pet-interactions that mess up the queue.

 

Regarding the OP's bee-box, I noticed that getting stung makes my queued-beebox actions drop.

 

Also have a problem--thought it was related--where I try to cancel an action (often a game-generated action) but it won't X-out, or it X's-out but then restores itself.  Then my queued actions time out/drop while the sim stands there or does the game-generated action.  It's frustrating, because the game is playing itself instead of letting me play the game my way.

 

eta:  I've noticed that GF-celebrity-fans almost always cause my celebrity-sims' queued actions to drop.  Seems likely this is by design, to emphasize how intrusive fans are for celebrities, but it's not fun or amusing, even if it's true-to-life.  The game would be more fun to play if this were not a constant.  For those of us with joint pain, having to re-do our queues so often is a literal, physical pain.

 

Earlier someone mentioned not being able to interrupt joggers in the neighborhood (console game).  I've had the same problem on the pc for ages (years?), regardless of neighborhood.  I've learned to stop trying to interact with the walkers/joggers/etc.  I had to give up on cheat-teleporting 'way in front of the target-passerby so my sim's right near them when the queued interaction 'activates', 'cuz even that seldom worked.
