Waiting Around Is a Quality of Life Issue

Waiting Around Is a Quality of Life IssueScientists may be able to clone sheep, but we’ve yet to hear of them successfully cloning people. It would be nice, though, wouldn’t it, for those days when you need to be in two places at once? You know what we’re talking about. The cable repairman is coming sometime between the hours of the crack of dawn and before the sun sets — hopefully — but you have a huge presentation to give at work. You have to decide if your home quality of life suffers or your work life. Or do you?

Home Waiting Services

Home waiting services are increasing in popularity in our area — potentially because the cloning thing hasn’t worked out, but mostly because it improves quality of life. Quality of life is lost when you’re forced to spend time sitting around at home waiting for a service or delivery, when you have more important, and often income-producing, things to do.

Time spent at home waiting for service people cost Americans nearly 38 billion dollars in 2011. Imagine what that figure could be six years later! Consider what one hour of your time is worth — high double digits, into the triple — and multiply that by all the hours you spend waiting. How many days a year are you in this situation? If you’re like the average American, probably three or four, at a minimum. That’s a lot of missed time at work, or simply time you could be doing something else productive.

This is where home waiting services come in. You can pay trusted professionals a reasonable rate to wait at your home while you work or take care of other tasks. Pretty great isn’t it?
