Hurry Up and Wait
I find the word "waiting" one of the most difficult in the English language. Well, not the word itself. I mean, I know what it means and I can even spell it. It's the whole concept behind waiting that drives me to distraction.
I think I've alluded to my little problem with patience before. I hate to be told to wait -- or hold, hold on, in a minute, it'll be a little while, soon, it's going to take longer than we thought, be patient, they'll be right with you, expect a short delay...
If I wanted to wait, I wouldn't be there NOW. Grrrrrr.
