They bribe me with free coffee,

free soda,

and fresh donuts.

They check it,

wash it,

and vacuum it.

But all their kindness does not negate

the hard, uncomfortable chairs that were not made for human hineys,

the tv that blares too loudly from a station most Americans don’t watch,

and the mechanical smell of new rubber, grease, and oil that sticks in your nose.

Yet the most grievous complaint…

they keep me captive until they are finished.

  1. Somehow, I don’t believe the free coffee entices you. Chairs in the waiting room are uncomfortable. Bet you could change the channel on the TV, but if I know you, you have a book so you don’t hear the TV at all. The car wash would be nice though. 🙂
