    Don't Like

    I'm one of those persons who doesn't like waiting in long lines. If I see a long line, and think it's going to to be a very long time before it ends, I'll just go home, no matter how much I want something.

    I Just Hate It!

    I hate it so much because I'm very impatient. I don't like waiting, and when I do have to wait on something, I get pissed and easily irritated. Patience is something I still have to learn. I get impatient with myself, with everyone, and everything. So waiting in line is like a...

    I Hate It

    If there's one thing that I hate is standing in long lines, I just don't take it very well. For me I usually don't like people who stand right behind me, it makes me feel uncomfortable. I don't know why but that's just the way I feel about standing in long lines, and especially...

    It Is Not Worth The Wait

    I cannot stand for anyone to behind me; so long lines bring out major anxiety in me. I do not like the closeness of strangers. We now live in a society that having to wait in lines can be avoided. We can shop at many stores late at night or early in the morning. We can...
