It is the wait I hate
The constant wondering where
I fight the evil thoughts
That lead not here or there

It is the wonder I bemunder
The feeling of disrespect
I shrug off the offense
Your excuse I find suspect

It is fact that you are late
The time has come and gone
I refuse to label you
But this is just plain wrong

I don’t like to wait.  Here I am waiting again.

    I take solace in the fact that I’m not the only onethat feels that way. I feel like, I won’t make you wait so pleeeeeez don’t make me wait (and don’t punish me for being on time!) I don’t know where I get it from but I would much prefer to get there early and wait in the car if I have to. A little common courtesy dictates that you let someone know if you won’t be there on time… if nothing else just so I know you’re not lying in a ditch somewhere!!

    Thanks for letting me know I’m not the only impatient one out there!

    I don’t think you’re impatient, as anonymous says…you’re disrespected and that’s frustrating. I know…I know you know I know…I feel the same way…And I loathe it when I am late. You said it well. It’s in the genes…

    That is so weird, in a conversation a group of us were having last night. Someone reminded me of what someone else said about what being late is…pride. You are too busy thinking about yourself, to think of the others who are…waiting…well that convicted me, I tend to be late sometimes. I try to do too many things last minute. Then it is frustrating for both.

    Good poem…the last line really jumps out at you!
