Need a little patience, yeah
Just a little patience, yeah - Guns n Roses
Patience, we are told as children, is a good habit.
But it's hard.
We've all been in trying situations that test our sanity.
Traffic is a test.
We've all been behind a slow-moving motorist who is blissfully unaware that the rest of the traveling population has a destination to reach, and not much time.
So do you lay on the car horn?
The problem with that scenario is that, at times, many of us have been the slow driver, riddled with indecision as we don't know where we are headed.
My pet peeve in the patience department is people standing in grocery aisles with a cart, unaware that I am trying to get around them, unaware that I am STARVING and need food.
So do I clear my throat? Rattle the side of my shopping cart? Scream bloody murder?
Or just be patient and wait like a civilized person?
I bet my blood pressure would decrease if I would adopt some calm, soothing exercise.
I should run to the bookstore and buy a book on this topic, but I bet I would have to wait in line.
