More or less patience as you've gotten older?

    I'm very patient until I'm not. And then, when you haven't gotten the hint, which you should have, then my explosion is all on you, cause you knew it, and didn't do anything about it. And that has never changed about me.

    I have much less patience where goods or services that I'm paying for are concerned. I speak up & am much more insistent on getting what I'm paying for or there will be consequences. No more " oh well, that's ok..." When something or somebody doesn't deliver. Giving fewer second chances, more "one and done." Concurrently, more selective in who I do business with.

    In general more patient. Never when young did I walk in other's shoes..now I do.

    My short patience is with government. Those liars.

    I am more patient because at my age I've come to realize that nothing much really matters, at all, in this life. I don't sweat the small stuff, and 95% of everything we deal with is the small stuff. Let it ride!

    I am more patient with routine stuff just taking the time it does, and with children and animals, but less patient with idiots.
