The waiting game

I am writing this while sitting in the waiting room of the Freeway Medical building in Little Rock. My mom had an appointment for her back at 10:30 this morning. It is now 1:00 in the afternoon as I write this. We are still waiting for her to go back to get her treatment. And, then after that, we are to go to physical therapy.

I foolishly assumed we would have eaten and been on the road home by now. Not even close. At this point, I don't even know if we'll be home in time for supper! Yeesh.

Since the building has wireless, I have been able to do some work online. I should ask the boss if I can claim half a day's work since I am working on my 'sick time.'

My question is this: why would a doctor schedule surgeries and treatments on the same day? There is a room full of people that could have been gone from here long ago. instead, we sit here waiting... and waiting... and waiting. At some point, they should just tell everyone to reschedule their appointments and buy us lunch!
