We spend 4 hours doing this per year. What is it?

This is a radio trivia question & I don't know the answer, but wanted to get your input. People already guessed many things, so I know it is not cutting finger nails, waiting at a stop light, brushing teeth, shaving, waiting in line, filing nails, preparing your income taxes, kissing, tying your shoes or planning your vacation.

The soonest I will know the answer to tell you would be Monday evening, so I will leave this question open, until I can tell you all the answer.

  • I tried to google it... the ONLY thing I came up with is what the above post says "emergency room visit"

    The only other things I found were Questions saying the same thing that your Q says....LOL! Must be a common radio contest question!

  • I saw the emergency room one online, but I think that is an average waiting time there. This seems like we all do this. I don't go to the emergency room very often & for sure not every year, but when I have, not 4 hours. Planning vacations is 4 hours, but apparently they are not using that as the answer, as it was guessed & not right. Thanks for that great link xxhazeldovexx! I sit on the toilet & dh pees more then 4 hours a year. Maybe wiping your butt!!!

  • I think it is either:
    1) Blowing your nose, or; 2) Changing batteries.
