do you hate waiting on people?

I am going shopping today with my in laws and nobody ever told me what time we are leaving, so I have been up since 7 thinking we would leave early because we are going 3 hours away. but they called and said they will call me when they are ready to go. lol
I love them, but I am so impatient! (I hate that about myself)
so, do you hate waiting?

  • I despise waiting. I hate waiting on people, waiting in lines, waiting for people to write checks at the check-out, getting stuck behind slow drivers....

    I don't complain or tailgate. I wait my turn quietly. But inside, I am a four-year old whining, "Hurry up!"

  • If I am all set and ready to go, yes! I usually need the extra time to get myself and my son ready though. I guess since I've had my son I've been the one everyone is waiting for! I do get impatient once we're good to go though.

  • I completely refuse to go on trips and outings if there is no specific plan - I hate waiting, and I hate not knowing when we are leaving/arriving etc.

    Invariably, if there is not a sceduled time to leave - I start on the washing/writing an email etc, and get cut off short. Very annoying.

  • OMG this happens to me all the time. NO ONE is ever ready when I am and I have to wait around all day! It drives me crazy.

  • If we have arranged a time then I want them to be on time. It is an agreement. Sometimes things come up, so OK, and they should call if they can. But if I am expecting someone to be there at a certain time and they aren't, then I can't start doing something else since I am expecting them to be there shortly.

  • I'm the same way. I hate waiting on people! My patience is always in extreme short supply. I even get annoyed if they take too long to make my coffee at starbucks.

  • I am so impatient! lol, my dh nickname is turtle. He takes like 2 hours to do dishes that take me about 20 mins to 1/2 hour to do. He never does anything in a hurry or even quickly. When he says, it will take me about 5 mins, I just roll my eyes and laugh because I know I could take a nap and he still won't be done:) Love him to death though.
