This room, as miserable as it is, is also one of most amusing set-ups in the book: a waiting room where tea and sweets are still served to the guests, but where the guests literally wait forever. A great Urhtian example of the almost completely forgotten purpose of a place, and a custom, still lingering on in a mutated form.

I got a big kick out of this, too.
