Do you mind waiting 4 hours and 3 minutes?

The average waiting time at ER in the U.S. is simply getting out of control, more than 4 hours.

The alternatives one has when facing a  longer wait than expected at a doctor’s office are only a few; reading those old magazines, watching the TV, sending text messages or checking emails on your iPhone…not much for more than 4 hours.  What do you do?  answer the poll to the right of this post.

There are some good news though, some are trying new ideas such as restaurant-style pagers.

What else do you do when you have to wait? add your comments below.
