Why is it so hard for us to wait for anything anymore?

I see ppl honk if they have to stop so I can park. I see ppl get upset if they think I'm taking too much time putting my money in my wallet while finishing in the grocery line. I see ppl use that special sign language if they think I don't turn from the left lane fast enough for their liking. Or if I'm not speeding with the rest of them on the freeway, they go around and practically run me off the lane. What's up with that? I myself find it hard to just sit and read a book or even pray. Why are we in such a hurry? Plz keep it clean. Thank you

  • I imagine most people feel the same way I do, holiday shopping is terribly stressful. I want to get in, get it done and get out. I don't want to wait while someone pokes into a parking spot or organizes their wallet in line. I'm not saying this is what you are doing, but I am saying that some people seem to move extra slow when they know other people are waiting and I know for me, I am most stressed when I have to go shopping during the month of December so it feels like people are taking even longer than they may be.

  • It's the life we have come accustomed to. Live in the "fast lane"

  • Unfortunately it's a "me" society. So many people seem to think what they want, they should get and they should get it when they want it. It tends to be worse around the holidays (depending on where you live, I think).

  • i never used to have to drive so much. My DD's school is pretty far & i have to drive back & forth twice a day. At first, i was the slow pushover driver who got yelled at all the time for being slow. After a while though, driving became very irritating & stressful. I soon became one of those drivers who is constantly swearing & cursing people out. This went on for a while...driving was a chore.

    But one day i realized how stupid i am being. I thought "I should be so grateful that i have a car & am able to drive my DD to a great school". When i was little my mom never drove, we walked or took the train everywhere. I remembered this & felt even more grateful that i am so lucky to have a nice working car. So, any time i begin to get irritated with driving...i try to think of how horrible life would be without a really helps!

  • I am in a hurry because I am selfish self important and I want my way and don't feel like watching others take forever to do something. I see five hundred people a day and would like them all to get service.

  • sorry

  • Because most people are selfish, inconsiderate, impatient, and generally just irritated.
    Not many people care about anyone but themselves, or their "own" anymore. Its sad.
