Doctor’s Office – Waiting Room Humor

Lots of Laughs at the Doctor’s Office if You Watch


Do you people watch? I do. I could do it for hours. Take today for example. Over the past few months I have been going to tons of Dr appointments with a family member. And since we have had to go to a variety of Drs, they each have provided different types of fun.

One doctor for example is located downtown and has a variety of different backgrounds for patients.  Old, young, poor, poorer, Hispanic, White, round, tall, well you get the picture.  The doctors office I am at now is less diverse. Maybe it is because the Snowbirds are in town but let’s just say the average age in this waiting room is like 60+. A very white 60+  that is. The only real diversity being US citizen vs Canadian.  Lol

But the true fun comes from the realization that even with the diversity, there are just certain things you are guaranteed to find no matter where the location is or who the clientele is. These habits you get to see in all in these places. Let’s see how many you have encountered…

  • The man picking his nose, looking at it, then looking around the room to see if anyone else is looking – CHECK
  • The screaming kids running around without a leash or parental watchCHECK
    • Some of which come up to you and ask 50 questions while their parents are oblivious that their kid is talking to a complete stranger CHECK
  • The folks that are praying no one takes the chair next to them CHECK
    • Or their alter ego who takes up both chairs next to them with their jacket and purse pretending they are holding it for someone CHECK
  • The person next to you telling you their entire medical history even tho you just met them 2 min ago CHECK
  • The older gentlemen wearing tube socks and Bermuda shortsCHECK
  • The woman in the wheelchair glad she has her own seat and doesn’t have to share part of hers with the person taking up two since the seats are virtually on top of each otherCHECK
  • The person that jumps every time the doctor’s door opens thinking it’s their name being called CHECK
    • The nervous Nellie’s shaking like a leaf due to fear it really will be their name this timeCHECK
  • The one reading a book praying no one will bother try and talk to themCHECK
    • You know, the one with the paperback, Kindle, magazine so close to their nose with eyes peering above hoping you don’t noticeCHECK
  • Then there is the half of the room playing on their phone.  CHECK
    • Then half of that half playing words for friends just not with each otherCHECK
    • The other  half with earbuds in and lip singing to Adele CHECK

BINGOOOOOOOOOO..!!! oh sorry, thought I had a black out bingo for a sec…..

Well, you get the picture, and I’m sure some of these folks have entertained you as well. If I missed one, feel free to share with future readers who will join in on our people watching fun. Next time we can tackle people at the airport, or the amusement park, or maybe jump on the Walmart ones, cuz if you have ever gotten that email with the pictures of Walmart shoppers (or you are one in the pictures) then you know how freaking hilarious people watching at Walmart can be.   😀


~~~till we laugh again~~~
