ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's patience while waiting for her doctor. The author spent three hours in a doctor's waiting room. To deal with the situation, she either read book or wrote her prayers while waiting. She suggested that others could do it, too. She cited the example of a woman who was so caught up in a crossword puzzle that when she was called, she was startled.
