    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.

    Not Exactly True, But.....

    I can wait my turn, as long as it takes.  But, when some A-hole comes along that thinks his time is so much more important than mine, and he thinks he should have the right to jump line, I get alittle agitated.  I am not above waiting my turn, and have even been known to let...

    Aaaarrgggg!

    Patience is not something I have a lot of. I've walked out of a lot of places. I try to remember to take a book when I have to go somewhere where the line may be long - like the post office. And I stand there are read. It really helps - I think of something other than how...

    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 Depends

    If there is one poor soul who got unexpectedly swamped, that's different. I only get really pissed when i see people standing around talking while the lines get longer.

    I don't do mornings very well - In fact you have to kick me out of bed to get me up. Also the fact that I have to get outta bed at 6:00am doesn't help.
