Down on Impatience Street

Have you ever sat and waited for someone to pick you up and the person is really late? And maybe its raining or cold.

And each time a car comes down the street and it is not them, you get more annoyed.

Well, I was thinking the other day about how when a car that is not them comes down the street your ride is no more absent than they already are. The only reason why the car who is not them annoys you is because, before you see its incorrect license plate or unfamiliar bumper sticker, you think that it is your ride.

Your hope string is pulled and then let to snap back into your already angry face. You are sinking lower, but really the event of the wrong car coming down the road is a non event. You are no more abandoned, you are only a few seconds older, a few drops wetter and much less patient.

And maybe you should get your own car.
