What’s Something You’ve Completely Lost Patience For?
This is about 0% surprising. According to a new survey, we've got LESS PATIENCE today than ever before. And three-quarters of people think it's because modern technology has ruined our ability to wait for ANYTHING.
I mean, I've always been an impatient person. Heck, I even half taught myself to read as a kid because my Mom didn't have time to drop everything and read me a book anytime I wanted.
Turns out though, a lot of us are very alike in this regard, just about very specific things.
Here's how long it takes before we start losing our patience in different scenarios.
1. Waiting for a website to load . . . 16 seconds until we start to lose it.
Oh man, I get so impatient about this, but then, it's my job, you know? I need information!
2. Waiting for a movie or TV to start streaming . . . 22 seconds.
When I get that little circle of terribleness... bring on the frustrated sighs.
3. Waiting for a traffic light to change . . . 25 seconds.
I was behind a guy the other day who literally stopped at every green light like it was a stop sign. What the heck, am I right?
4. Waiting for a line to start moving . . . 30 seconds.
5. Waiting to get a drink at a bar . . . seven minutes.
I can't remember the last time I waited for a drink just sitting at a bar. I have gotten a drink with food or something, but not at the bar in recent memory. I asked you guys what you thought of all this, and here are some of your answers.
While neither of them are good, I certainly hope you're not referring to the slimy blood sucking creatures. I mean, nobody wants someone in their lives who is taking advantage of them, but.... I Dunno. I saw that scene in "Lean On Me" and it's been a weird phobia since.
Lack of common sense.
I admit, sometimes I feel like I don't have a lick of sense either, but... yeah, it can get pretty out of hand.
And I agree! I've had enough of all these nouns!
Those who meddle in other people’s business.
I can't say I do much of that anymore. Maybe I did when I was in my twenties and trying to help, but a lot of the time it's not worth it.
Anyway, you can always comment on our Facebook page and tell me what you think.
