Pookie waits too
THIRTEEN THINGS WHAT PEOPLE DO WHILE WAITING

1. They take out their mobile call somebody and everybody can listen to the latest family news

2. They "read" a book while observing all people around above the border

3. They look around for a victim to chat and start : "How long are you waiting ?"

4. They admire their shoes for a while

5. They look for something in their nostrils and admire what they found

6. They finally have the time to clean their ears

7. They gnaw their nails

8. They take out a mirror and admire themselves moving cheaks from left to right

9. They check their shoes if they are dirty

10. They fall asleep and snore, mouth open

11. They clean their glasses

12. They admire their hands, fingers and fingernails

13. They stare at the door as if they want to open it with just one glance

I participate to a humorous story contest called "This Blog Blows My Dress Up" (although I am not wearing dresses). This contest takes place at Shelly Kneupper Tucker's blog "The Eclectic Life" There you can read my entries and others of course. So if you want to participate and make us laugh then enter a funny story.

Then there are some of us who avoid eye contact to prevent conversations or play games on a pda. Very observant list Gattina!

Aww...guilty. I do a lot of this. Maybe not the nostril thing, but yeah..

Christina said...

LOL, these are pretty funny. It's kind of amazing what people will do when they're bored. And I have caught people picking their noses in waiting rooms before. Ewwwwww.

damozel said...

Yeah, eewwww. I've never seen anyone do that in public and I hope I never do.

The cell phone loud-talkers are my sworn enemies.

Cat Marsters & Kate Johnson said...

Number one reminded me of this girl sitting behind me in the airport lounge as I was flying home from Atlanta last year. She seemed to be calling everyone she'd ever met and telling them very loudly that she was at the airport and she was flying to London. Over and over again.

It was a 9hr flight. I caught myself thinking that THIS is why phones aren't allowed on planes!

Heart of Rachel said...

How interesting! I've actually witnessed some of them.
