The Most Annoying Things At The Doctor's Office

As I'm writing this, I'm currently listening to some of the most annoying things at a doctor's office. People seem to have lost all common courtesy when sitting at the doctor's office. It amazes me how inconsiderate people are to others. While my mom is sitting in her sinus surgery, I have to listen to the annoyances of someone who thinks that they're more important than anyone else in the room. So here's some things that are annoying (& FRANKLY RUDE) at the doctor's office. 


-Not turning your phone on silent.
I get it, we live in the technology age where we all sit & stare at some sort of electronic device all day. But just because it's fine to quietly text or scroll through Facebook, doesn't mean you should leave your phone on LOUD. I don't care that you have a really important phone call to make about what you're eating for lunch, GO OUTSIDE OR IN THE HALLWAY. And for goodness sake, take that annoying iPhone-typing clicking noise off. I don't need to know how many words per minute you're typing. 

-Eating.
You know, I'm hungry too, but please stop smacking. 

-Talking in a normal voice (not whispering).
Don't you know that it's common courtesy to whisper in a quite place? We all don't need to know EVERYTHING about your personal life... Especially when you're at the doctor's office. One word: HIPAA.

-Coughing. 
Ugh, I understand you're sick, but please don't get me sick too in the process. I try to keep my 20-something year old immune system in line over here. 

-Tapping. 
That pen & those shoes though. Please, just stop. My nerves are about to explode. 

-Soap operas. 
Why are we always forced to watch soap operas at the doctor's office? LIKE, THAT'S NOT EVEN GOOD ACTING. Turn it to a family show. 

-Cussing. 
If you want to participate in such language in your personal life, that's between you & God. But for me to have to sit & listen to you say the "f-bomb" or other inappropriate words, THAT'S RIDICULOUS. And it's also just flat out disrespectful & rude.


I hope you all can relate to these annoyances... Or maybe YOU are that annoying person. Next time you're at the doctor's office, remember these things & be respectful to the people around you.

Rant over.
