    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.

    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...

    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...

    It Depends

    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
