Weekends should be fun. But in early sobriety, the days off can seem daunting. Here are some of our least favorite things to do when we should be enjoying our down time.

    Lines are generally unpleasant. According to The Fact Site, the average person can spend up to five years of their life waiting in line? 

  2. junk-mail

    Junk mail can pile up faster than snow during an avalanche. That nagging mountain on your table or counter? If you feel like you have to go through it this weekend, why not make it fun and try making some origami using the useless sheets?

  3. on-hold

    Did you know the longest time spent on hold is 15 hours, 40 minutes, and one second, according to an ABC News article? 

  4. waiting-room

    Waiting rooms aren't fun to begin with. But when it comes down to waiting for a couple of hours, yes hours, for an appointment, who really wants to do that on a weekend?

  5. waiting-for-package

    Whether you're waiting to sign for a package or you have to be home for a repair man, it gets boring. Quickly. Distract yourself with a book or a good show. After all, who knows when they'll really show up?

    According to an article in the Seattle Times, the average driver can spend up to 58 hours per year looking for a parking spot. That's a little less than 2 and a half days wasted in cars and stewing in aggravation. 

  7. board-tv

    Sometimes it feels like all you're watching on TV is commercials. Some stations are inundated with them. When in doubt? Mute the channel and come up with your own script to the commercials. 

  8. filing-taxes

    According to the IRS, it can take someone an average of 13 months to prepare and file their tax return. Who wants to spend a Saturday like that?

  9. charging-phone

    You know that phrase, "A watched pot doesn't boil"? Well, a watched phone apparently doesn't charge--or it takes forever. 

  10. traffic

    Did you know that drivers can spend an average of 41 hours sitting in traffic per year? And after 50 years of driving experience, we can spend up to 122 days in traffic. That's four months of road rage!
