I know it’s a petty problem, but I have found that I am never as impatient as when a short task could be shorter. I have no patience to take the escalators when I’m ever so slightly faster on foot, I can’t walk behind slow people even when they themselves overtake others and I sure as hell can’t deal with the minute of wait before water boils.

At home however that whole thing turns around for some reason, I love preparing a can of tea and taking all the time in the world – in fact I often use the time to do small chores or maybe do some pushups in the minute it takes.
