Are you like me? I HATE TO WAIT! Even when I’m in a line and I don’t have anything to do after I finish my errand… I still hate to wait!
Yes, we could explore the psychological affect behind the need to have my needs attended to before yours. I’m sure it’s part of a complex flaw I have that has effected every aspect of my life. I was thinking about this a few weeks back, while I was in the “waiting” room at the Hospital Emergency Room. As I was waiting, a person came in with very serious injuries and they whisked him off to the back for help….
That got me thinking about the waiting area at the behavioral health provider I go to. Even when I set a appointment, I still have to wait between 25 to 45 minutes. A few times, it was over an hour. What if they saw you based on the seriousness of your condition? I figured out the logistics of it and the best way to make this fair would be seeing people based on the amount of medications you have to take a day! Is it reasonable to conclude that if you take 5 pills a day, you’re not doing too bad and could wait a little while longer then say someone like me, that takes 15 pills a day? And I would be happy to yield my appointment to someone that takes 30 pills a day. It would be an interesting waiting system to say the least.
