Words are weird.
I had to do that recently. Without my energy drink, I was both starving and about to fall asleep.
They should give you two times for your appointment: the scheduled time and the actual time.
If you need food, you should go for an arm or a leg. Heads don't have a lot of meat on them.
I hate having to wait at the doctor's. It's always so looooong….
I work in a medical institution. Sometimes the previous patient arrives late. Sometimes a previous patient's condition turns out to be more serious than what the patient described over the phone while making the appointment. Sometimes some equipment needs to be cleaned for an unrelated appointment, stretching the support staff thin. And sometimes there's just no excuse. All I can say is I understand more now.
Yup. I swear, I spend more time waiting for the doctor than actually talking to them. But I also know it's not always their fault.
They take forever, and then they're with you for maybe five minutes. Sigh.
I know. And we seldom complain though we would if we had to wait so long at any other place.
Please validate me.
