Okay, this is kinda like "the person below me" except it's based on what you or the next person in line wishes. Answers are yes/no, followed by a new wish. Feel free to explain your answers.

For example, "The next person in line wishes she made more spaghetti sauce for dinner"

I would answer:

"No.
The next person in line wishes they had found Mothering before their firstborn arrived."

And you would answer........

No, but I do wish i could shower without a 5 year old asking "mom, can you hurry so we can play?" or making requests such as "Okay, now I have to poop, so please try not to make any noise....No-I can't turn the fan on-it makes too much noise!"

The next person in line wishes that they knew how to say NO more often (be it to hubby, kids, boss, volunteer work...)

Sometimes

The next person in line wishes their boss (whoever that may be) would stop forwarding them e-mail they don't want to deal with and making more work for said forwardee to do on a day when there is already too much to do and it is almost lunchtime and some of us would like to get out of here before the sun comes up tomorrow... (pant, pant, pant)...
