Quote by David Byrne: “Patience is a virtue but I dont have the time.”
10 Signs You Have Absolutely No Patience
For every saint-like human being dancing through life, there are at least five of us who are just trying to get through the day without committing murder. Here are the top 15 signs that you fall into the latter category. You find yourself stuck behind a slow moving large vehicle, or a cautious sedan cruising around on a workday morning, and suddenly you realize that you've been plotting the driver's death for the past 10 miles. You're about to attempt NASCAR-esque moves just to get around this person, and you know for a fact you're going to be late and it's all their fault. When you finally do get a chance to pass them, you give them the stare down. Your best friend is trying to tell you about this hilarious thing that happened recently, and all you can think about is when will this story end?! When people try to describe anything to you in detail you find yourself fighting back the urge to interrupt.
Here's a riddle: What do traffic jams, long lines and waiting for a vacation to start all have in common? Aside from the painfully obvious fact that they're completely unwelcome stressors in our lives, there's another answer: They're all situations where we could use a little extra patience. In our defense, it's not really surprising or fault-worthy if we don't practice the virtue often. In a digitally obsessed world, we're used to having what we need immediately and right at our fingertips. Even further, we're constantly busy. Between rushing from work, to home, to kids' recitals or Zumba class, it's no wonder we don't really have patience.
Think about it for a minute. We all want instant gratification and want things without waiting. We expect packages delivered the same day.

Are you one of those people who practically sprints down moving walkways in airports and climbs escalators two steps at a time? If getting stuck behind a slow walker is your idea of a nightmare, you're probably suffering from sidewalk rage. It's a real thing, according to the science publication Nautilus. But chances are, your frustration isn't limited to just slowpokes on the sidewalk. The problem is, our patience threshold is a bit out of whack. As part of the evolutionary process, patience and impatience used to serve the important function of dictating how long it was okay to chase after something--say, that deer that looks like a fine supper--and when it was time to let go so you didn't die trying, writes Nautilus's Chelsea Wald.
Here's the problem: you're waiting for someone to finish compiling a report that you need for a meeting. Because of an issue that came up, you're already 15 minutes late. You can feel your body getting tense, and you're getting quite cross. You start sweating, and suddenly you yell at the person for being slow and putting you behind schedule. You can tell she's hurt, but you can't help it.
