What if you are caught waiting?

Hey careguarden! When I am caught waiting for a ride I get really uptight! I don't like to be kept waiting because I am always afraid that I will be late for an appointment. I always give myself extra time for the ride to be late anyway, but if it gets too late I start to pace and get very stressed out because it is usually an important appointment like a doctors visit. And if it is a flight that I am waiting for I hate to fly as it is so I am extra stressed! I try to go into the gift shop and look around, call someone on the phone, maybe have something to eat, all to waste some time so that I will be kept busy and forget how really scared and stressed I am! I will talk to someone if they want to talk, but that doesn't usually happen until maybe I am on the plane!

Cell phones are boon in this. You can listen to music, sms to friends, make calls to friends, surf the net if you have the facility in your phone, listen or watch music and videos,etc...You can do a lot of things with a cellphone to kill time. I always use to delete the read messages and clean up the inbox when I have to wait somewhere.

Usually I am not someone who likes to wait a lot, I hate waiting infact so what I do to keep off boredom is to read a book which is my favorite anywhere I go and then I might be day dreaming too which I also like doing as there are many of that dreams which came true.
