Just no patience for people these days...

I'm not sure why. Maybe it is because having to say or explain things multiple times to a person is what I consider a waste of my time, and my time is valuable, since I really don't know how much I have. Oh, it's not like I plan on dying anytime soon, but for all I know a meteorite could come crashing through the roof and smash me flat right in the middle of a word or a sentence. Or maybe I am a distant cousin to Oscar The Grouch. Either way, I just find it extremely irritating when I have to say something 2 or 3 times, or even worse, when I tell someone something that I know to be a fact and they try to say it isn't like that. Besides, I get enough backtalk from Scar...and HE always wins. I refuse to lose all arguments.

I lost patience with people long ago. Scar says less backtalk human and more subservience.

I cannot imagine that you are related to Oscar the Grouch at all. I hope that your day gets better.

As a teacher, I got us to saying or explaining things over and over and over again. There were always more than a few who just didn't get it on the first, second, third, fourth, fifth... time! I retired early.

When the mind is pretty close at anything no matter how true the information and facts that person won't budge nor change their belief. King Scar is the master. You'll never win with him.

You reminded me of a guy at my dad's house. He kept telling me I was wrong on things, and I knew I was right. And if he had looked these things up, he would have known that. I was getting more upset, so in respect to my dad, I left. The next day my dad said, "You were mean to that guy yesterday." I responded, "I wasn't mean. I was rude!"

There are folks who just don't "get it" and others who are just hard of hearing. Repeating to either throws off my train of thought.

Scar would prob just tell you there is no point trying, might as well just quit before, at least where he is concerned

You poor thing, I sure hope Scar isn't watching when............ oh nevermind. OH yeah, I wonder if I could trouble you about something you explained a long while ago about how to post a link from youtube without it playing all the extra stuff that comes after the video you want to share, I can't find your tip, I know it's on here somewhere but boy, there's sooooooooooo much to go through. PLEEEEZE?

Some folks just like to argue, I believe they get off on it, while others need to be told something many times for it to just simply sink in.

People can be quite frustrating I agree. We just need to surround ourselves with people who don't annoy us as much. Lol.

You can never win with Scar, just like how I never win with my cats. I got 9 cats, of course I lose everytime. I just go with the flow, makes my life easier.

May be some people understands your point slowly and it takes time for them to get to the root of your suggestions. You need to bear with such slow people.
