Have to wait long?
Waiting on a doctor in Birma or Liberia, that takes long.
Too long.

Excuse me, but is it the translation or do you really mean 'waiting _on_ a doctor'? Like they are big eaters (and terrible tippers) or something.

Waiting 'for', perhaps?

'waiting on' is a less used way to say of 'waiting for'. Google it.

Why not use the more common one? Simpler is better.

It might be interesting to know these people joined in at the back of long waiting lines in the city. At money machines, musea, cinema;s etc.

And, unfortunately, there's no massage. It's Amsterdam, not Bangkok.

That line is in front of the Anne Frank Museum.
Not so cool.

i like it. says: "Hey, you're waiting for an entertainment, but there's people who are waiting for a doctor".

Dang. The ad suddenly became a whole lot more powerful for me.
