Can I give you something for your impatience?
- think flocking at a counter is better than getting into a line,
- like to jump lines when waiting at a billing counter,
- ask people to move a little ahead in line since you feel space is getting wasted,
- never know why should you stand behind the yellow line,
- stand up as soon as the plane comes to a halt or
- run to the baggage belt assuming your luggage will be thrown out if you don’t reach on time,
move on. This post is a waste of your time and why waste what is precious. Isn’t it?
I have learnt patience from the impatient and that’s a thing I keep learning all the time.
I am not sure if it is about following rules or waiting for their turns. An emergency is different but when you are locked in a plane and the aircraft has not come to a complete halt, why would you get up and get your baggage? Why would you think that the counter at a retailer is free when there are five people before you? What sense does it make to keep talking on a cell phone when you are in a no cell phone zone. If the doctor has come, your number will come. Why do you have to stand at the door and peep inside? Ever heard of privacy?
Let’s learn to breathe in and out and wait for our turn. Let’s respect space and follow rules. Know that the yellow line is there for a purpose. Let’s be patient every day. Every single day. A little more than we were yesterday.
