A Word a Week Photo Challenge: WAITING

If you have flown recently, you know that flights are scheduled for departure at ungodly early hours.  (At least it’s ungodly to me to leave at 5:15 AM!!!) But what I’ve noticed is this: airports — and travelers — are adapting to the new times, but it’s still a hurry-up-and-wait proposition!

For the Word a Week Photo Challenge: WAITING, here are Chicago O’Hare folks up and at ’em — yet waiting — at 6:00 AM this week!

1.  People waiting in line for hot coffee and pastries at Brioche Doree.  (Ya gotta have something to wake you up at 6, but I wonder what time the percolator got going!)

2.  Some folks spent time checking their early-morning emails or eating a wrapped-in-paper breakfast in the waiting area.

3.  Others checked the departure status of their flight.

  1. Waiting….what a waste of time in life. Too many important things to do in this life than to have all this wasted time. You captured my emotions perfectly…lol
