How do you occupy your time when you are stuck in the doctor's office?

I had to take my mother to the doctor's office today. I have been here for about two hours. It got me wondering what people do to pass the time

  • I usually just browse the internet on my phone if I have to wait a long time for anything. Other than that, I would recommend reading a book or looking through a magazine of some sort.

    • It isn't like there are many options. I have discovered a new one though. Posting questions on gag.

    • haha yes, GAG is a great way to spend time when you're bored at the doctor's office :)

  • Hope all is well with Mrs. Bluemax. ☺

    I go to the doctor often, and I always make sure my phone is fully charged. Sometimes I'll play games; sometimes I'll browse the Internet looking at food; every once in a while I'll do a little bit of work (phone has a large screen).

    • Well, she is 81 and has dementia. I must look after her.

      I should explore recipes on line.

    • You're a good son, man. People often neglect this responsibility. Kudos to you. :)

  • Doctors offices usally have guest WiFi.

    I'd log onto GaG and read some questions/write some opinions.

    Whoops, where did the time go?
    Works every time.

  • I take a book and reading glasses with me any place I expect to wait. If I'm waiting for someone else, very likely I'll go for a walk at least part of the time. I don't have any kind of mobile devices, to I do it the old fashioned way.

    • No mobile devices? That's got to be difficult.

    • I use enough electronic stuff at home, I don't need it when I go out. That's my time away from all that stuff. :)

  • The doctors and dentists I know have a heap of old magazines in their waiting room.
    I don't know if they get them from family members, leftovers from customers or if some company gathers and sells unsold copies to doctors for a few $$.

  • My doctors are very good at getting me in within 5-10 minutes, even without an appointment. So there's nothing I feel I need to do during the wait.

  • I read a book. Or you could do some kind of creative work, like knitting or sketching or writing.
