I am not the most patient person in the world. I can be when I need to be, but it’s often begrudgingly. There’s nothing I find more irritating than standing in line somewhere — a fast-food restaurant, a checkout line, a polling place, the DMV, or anywhere else people gather to stand in a queue — and people ahead of me in line don’t move when they need to. You’re standing there like an idiot with this huge gap several people ahead of you, and someone is fucking around on their phone or whatever and not paying attention. The same is true when you’re stopped at red light and the car ahead of you stopped too short of the car in front of them, so there’s a massive gap between them and that car, causing all the cars behind them to be backed up more than they should be. You honk, you gesticulate wildly, yet they don’t seem to get the hint. You can’t honk or gesticulate wildly when you’re standing in line. Well, you could, but you’d look awfully silly.
