If You Don't Like Waiting In LineSubmitted by michcrow on Thu, 01/23/2014 - 23:26
Or Waiting for much of anything for that matter. Doctors offices, dentists, etc... I have found that the quickest way for the line to move is to make sure you have a book to read with you (presumably one that you really enjoy reading!). For the last few years I have found that I have hardly had to wait for much of anything as long as I've had a book with me to read. In fact I've hardly gotten more than 2 or 3 pages at the most!!. As soon I've gotten started more than likely they are all ready for me. It's almost gotten to the point of frustration. I don't understand why, when before, I had to wait loads of time and now that I have something I'd like to read I can barely get a page in.
In fact this is how well it works. For the first time in years I've had to wait for almost 30 minutes for something very trivial at the DMV, it was just a copy of my registration. And do you know why I had to wait so long? You guessed it, I looked into my backpack and there were no books to be found.
So there you have it. Carry a book you'd like to read and all of sudden lines and waiting times seem to vanish. Forget your book and all of sudden "Oh if you could just wait here, it will only be about 1/2 an hour." It's ridiculous. And sort of amazing at the same time too.
