I hate waking before the alarm in the morning and then not being able to go back to sleep because I'm 'waiting' for it to go off.

I hate waiting for people who are late. I can be forgiving, but they'd better have a d**ned fine reason and it better not happen more than once.



I hate waiting for my kids to finish dawdling in the morning before school. (It's that LATE thing again. I can't stand to BE late either.)



I hate waiting for things I order from catalogs to come. I swear, every time a big truck passes my house I have to see if it is UPS.

I hate waiting the hour at the moncton bus terminal so I can make my connection back home. Bus terminals are notoriously seedy. Last time I was so bored, I ended up reading some religious magazines somebody had "left" on the table.

I hate waiting at the last stoplight before my house when I have to pee. It takes forever.

I hate waiting for food to cook when I am really hungry. I look at it constantly because that may actually make it cook faster.

I hate waiting for my turn when I know I have to make a presentation in my graduate classes.

I hate waiting for the mail to be delivered when the delivery person is running late. I also hate waiting for water to boil and I hate when I buy something in a store and then on the way out they have a person standing there that wants you to wait until they can get to you so they can match what you just paid for with the receipt! It's ridiculous! They are badgering the people who are paying for the products instead of the real shoplifters... don't they know that the vast majority of products stolen out of a store are stolen by employees themselves??? Okay... I'm done...

I hate waiting for the bus in the morning, and wondering if it came early and I missed it, or if it's late and I could have stayed inside longer.

I'm usually kind of patient, but some things really get me going...



I really hate waiting for a customer to swipe their credit card again if the machine didn't read it the first time. Some people pause for 5 seconds and stare blankly at the machine as if it's going to change its mind and take the bad swipe as OK enough. The WORST is when they look at the cashier after a few seconds and then say, "it didn't work."



Swipe the damn card again already!!

This is something you should definitely find the patience for...dream girls/guys don't advertise. Just pay attention, it could be someone you ride the METRO with, or someone you ride the elevator with over at FDIC. Perhaps someone you run into at that Whole Foods you rant about/love/hate over the olive bar. Go to the National Gallery of Art or the Corcoran, or the Museum of Natural History, you may find her over a display of Monet, Renior, or a dinosaur bone or two. It might be at the Museum of American History over the 1st Ladies' gowns, or the Hope Diamond, or the Fonz's *eww* Leather Jacket. You may hate those places, I know when I worked in DC for the FDIC/RTC I was close enough to visit on lunch hours and met some pretty decent folks ~ not dream dates, but...point is...she could be anywhere, maybe not so obvious to you. Be patient...



As for me, I hate waiting for my period. It's certainly hormonally regulated and has been for years. But, DAMN, the couple of days leading up, I just know it's coming and wish it would get here. Another one is...PAYDAY!!! When you get paid once a month, like you get your damned period, it's tough to wait to see that hard earned $ disappear in 2 days to the bank that owns your house, your car. The only money I don't mind seeing go from that check is the money that buys the food for my dogs. They eat better than I do most months ~ the curse/pleasure of working with a commission factored into your monthly income.

I hate waiting for people to get out of my way when I'm walking. You know the kind... you're walking happily along, then WHAMMO, someone cuts in front of you going at a snail's pace. You can't go around them because there are people blocking your way. So you wait, and wait, and wait... cursing under your breath.



Yeah, I drive this way too. Just get outta my &*^#ing way already. (ya, i know, i'm soooo american.)



i hate waiting for people to do whatever it is they do after using the ATM. You know, after they get their card & cash... and then they stand there, pilfering through their purse or wallet, as if they're going to do something else at the ATM. Or they neatly fold & tuck their bills and receipt, la la la.... as if I didn't have anything better to do but stand there and watch them organize their wallet. Get out of my way! I have things to do, people.



I hate waiting for price checks at the store. Or, ooooh, even better is when the person at the grocery store decides that they need one more of that last item. So they walk back to the far corner of the store to get that additional item. And then of course they have a coupon. Which is, of course, expired, but they think they should be able to use it anyway.



I'm not impatient at all... nope.... *points to halo*

Ooooh! one more. actually two - i'm not sure which is worse. Waiting for a plane to taxi, and waiting to get off one. I hate when everyone's on the plane, then something goes wrong like the paperwork isn't completed, so you're sitting there on the tarmac for like an hour, buckled in and unable to get off the plane. that sucks.



But what could be worse is when the plane lands and people jump out of their seats, as if they're going to be immediately transported out of the plane. And they're all reaching for their bags and pushing you out of the way because you're not moving quickly enough even though there's nowhere to go. Yeah, that's fun too.



man, I just *love* waiting.

i hate waiting in the rain/cold to get on a bus because the idiot in front of me didn't look up his route ahead of time and now has to debate with the driver over directions and fares.

oh and people on the bus who make that gross flem noise in their throat over and over again. jeez.
