I have absolutely no patience and often get really angry when my time is being wasted. Last week I wanted to discuss my phone bill so I called the phone company and was almost reduced to tears at the automated options being offered.

And whenever I go to the post office to get some stamps, it seems there’s always an eBay trader posting hundreds of parcels in front of me!
