Are you patient?


she tested my patience.... I had no choice but to stand there and wait, and I survived. I was a little annoyed but I didn't let it ruin my day.

One of the perks of retirement I didn't fully understand until I realized that I had no need to rush anything. It's amazing how good it feels to be stress free no matter the situation.

I force myself to be patient. I pick a long line to stand in. Then I survey the line and who is in it.
Then I try to calculate how long it will take to get through the line. It's a game.

Watching a video when it's interrupted for a commercial is a real test for me.

I'm finding now hardly anyone writes checks for groceries. The stores are requesting debit or credit cards.

There is one store that has a cash register for those who do not want to use debit or credit cards.
There is hardly ever a line up at all. Funny part about it. No one gets in that line to use a debit or credit card even though they will take it. Probably the cash guys would give them a kick in the ankle.

Fishing is a real exercise in patience. You can be out there all day and never even get a nibble.

Patience of a Saint, that's me.....😊

Queues, no long as I'm in the front.
People's long winded explanations, no problem.........I turn my lug-'oles off.
Record TV shows, and fast forward through the boring parts and adverts.

I'm so glad that I'm not impatient though. 😊
