at a restaurant, i notice that people are getting their meals served first even though i was the one who first ordered. sometimes, i get so huffy about this but then i realize that there may be a reason why that is happening, a reason which is not supposed to be huffy about. i realized that patience is really a virtue because sometimes, people just tend to jump to conlcusions and just get mad or irritated right away. who knows? maybe my food took longer time to cook than their food right? :)

Right. Maybe yours fell on the floor and they didn't want to give it to you so they had to make a new meal. lol. They don't want the other persons food to sit around and wait or they would have more complaints. Yes, patience it good. Good comes to those who wait...right?

I think that patience is a virtue. Mostly because when you become impatient, you get stressed, and it is never good to get stressed. Stress is a health concern, and can physically hurt you. It can lead to health problems, and I think a lot of people don't realize that. Unfortunately, I am not a very patient person, and I wish I was because I think it would make life easier!
