Top 10 REAL Names For This Waiting Room

I’m at a philosophical crossroads.

Humor Funny Humorous Family Life Love Laugh Laughter Parenting Mom Moms Dad Dads Parenting Child Kid Kids Children Son Sons Daughter Daughters Brother Brothers Sister Sisters Grandparent Grandma Grandpa Grandparents Grandfather Grandmother Parenting Gina Valley Top 10 REAL Names For This Waiting Room Healthcare WaitingI’ve long believed waiting rooms are the only properly named spaces in the world.

But, having sat in the parents’ waiting room for nearly uncountable hours during my child’s treatments, I’ve began to wonder if perhaps these rooms are misnamed.

Or, perhaps it’s just this one.

I’m pretty sure if I have to sit in this waiting room much longer I’m going to turn into a serial killer.

It’s not that I’m ungrateful for her treatment. I’m very grateful for it. And, I’m thankful for our insurance, without which we couldn’t afford this treatment.

But…

It’s definitely time to rename this waiting room, maybe even all of them.

    I am so thankful that I have been blessed to stay out of the ER in a long time. I try to take my kids to urgent care whenever possible just to avoid the ER.
