Waiting

Waiting takes many forms.

-Your call will be answered in the order it was received

-Line (queue) starts here (insert arrow)

-Please wait four to six weeks for your form to be processed.

and my absolute favorite, waiting rooms; rooms specifically designed to house the 4 people that a professional (doctor, photographer, dentist, ophthalmologist) all booked for the same 10:45am appointment.

I have started a "waiting room material" bag in my car for those times that I find myself in a situation that will cause me to be on time, but I am clear that is a one way restriction.  I exempt ObGYNs from this discussion.  I would want everyone to be as wonderful as my ObGYN was with me when I was pregnant.  He was patient with my questions and I always felt he was focused when I was in the room.  On the rare occasion he is running late in his office, I give him a pass.  Pay it forward as it were.

Patience in general is something I need to work on and I genuinely believe that my two year old was sent here to teach me that lesson.  Patience is a muscle that is getting stronger, but I am sore from the training!

In the mean time, I will continue to reward professionals who respect the time of their clients and shun those who don't.  What do you do to pass "waiting time"?
