hi java09 yes as a rule because I trained myself to do that. as a nurses aide I had to have a ton of patience in order to do my job of caring for sick patients, with patients you just had to have patience.Ill people are often frightented and angry at fate which led them to this bed in a hospital, and they are hurting and upset. You must try to be calm with them and also calm them down,.speak softly and low, and move gently not too briskly.If you can keep your cool when this older man or woman is calling you everything but nice lady, then you can handle almost anything life has to throw at you,. lol lol

Hi Java! Yes, I have patience with other people and I always try to listen to them careful, before doing some stupid and rash thing, because I am not a warlike person and I never start a fight first. I even listen to others couple of times, because I must be sure i have heard and understood it right, so that I can know how to handle with the situation, but sometimes some people really make me jump out of my skin, because they love to quarrel with the others and don't give them the word

A certain amount of patience is required for survival I think. There are just times where you have to deal with people who may not have a good enough grasp on things. There might need to be a careful explanation for certain things. Where you have to walk them though step by step, basically by the hand to help them. I have more than enough patience for these people, even if it can be frustrating when people do not get something that is simple for you. Rude people on the other hand, I only have a certain amount of patience for. Like I said, a certain amount is neccessary for survival. However, there is a difference between just letting things go and being a doormat. Push hard enough and I think the ceiling for my patience will be found.

Yes i have patience with other, but yes it depends on the situation. But i do my best level to show my patience. But sometime people make such a situation what break my patience.
