Patience (I’m told) is a Virtue

I’ve been told patience is a virtue.  Color me virtuous (not really, I’m lying!)
This morning finds me in a bad mood, augmented by the fact that BLOGGER doesn’t want to work – damn free software! – and even though my Internet connection seems medium-good, both Hotmail and Yahoo are slow and balking.  Sunspots?
I know last week was International-Act-Like-A-Pirate Day, but AAARRRGGGHHH!
At times like this I try to channel the comedian Louis C.K., who made the observation about people who complain their flight is 20 minutes late, whining all the way into the plane.
“You’re in a barkalounger, flying at 30,000 feet and 600 miles-per-hour to your destination miles away!  How miraculous is that?  And you’re complaining about 20 minutes?!”
Not dissimilar from the clowns who whine when the electricity is off for 15 minutes, not observing it’s been on for their entire lives!
God, please grant me patience – and I want it right now!

  2. I grumble at the length of time it takes my computer to boot, forgetting that it is lightening speed faster than what I had a decade ago.

  3. My first PC was a "turbo" XT – if you pressed a combination of buttons on the keyboard while it was booting up, the clock speed doubled from 1 Mhz to …. 2 Mhz.I think now is better, and I promise not to complain. Much.
