You Must Have Patience (or just some awesome technology)Dawn Meehan
I have seemingly limitless patience when it comes to kids. I guess that’s a good thing since I have six kids of my own and I work with kids who could try anyone’s patience on a daily basis! I really am pretty relaxed and patient when it comes to kids for some reason. But in other areas of my life . . .? Notsomuch. I have absolutely zero patience for slow drivers and for some mysterious reason, no one can even manage to get up to the speed limit down here in Florida! Back home, you’d be run off the road if you weren’t driving 15 mph over the speed limit. Down here, you’re lucky if they can even go as much as 15 mph!
I hate standing in line for any reason. I want to march to the front and demand, “Don’t you know who I am?!” Of course, I’m just an ordinary mom so that doesn’t usually get me anything but annoyed glares from the other people in line. Although, come to think of it, I usually let people with fewer items go in front of me at the store. Hmmm, apparently there’s no rhyme or reason to my psychosis.
On vacation, I cannot wait until I get home to see the pictures I took. Remember when cameras used film? Oh, the torture! Having wait for the pictures to be developed was an absolute nightmare for me! Of course, with digital, you no longer have to wait. In fact, I just learned the other day that I don’t even have to wait to view my videos anymore! I don’t need to find time to sit down and put them on my computer or anything. I can plug my Sony Handycam right into the TV in my hotel room and watch the videos immediately! How cool is that? For a person with limited patience, it’s awesome! And I probably would’ve known this sooner if I hadn’t been too impatient to read the instruction manual.
