Work is slow and that is a bad thing. I like to keep busy; it helps prevent my mind from wandering. So when I sent an email the other department, asking for the data listing, I had only myself in mind. I did not consider the short staffing of the other department or the tight deadlines that the recipient of my email was under. I had only myself in mind. My impatience yielded nothing. Still, I am waiting.
It seems like impatience is running beneath the surface – making my skin crawl with uneasiness.
My mini-van was taken to the shop yesterday for its maintenance and an issue with the power door. By 4 pm, my impatience with the service representative was growing into anger. Problems, it seems there are always problems these days.
Well, my van is still in the shop, but I am now driving a rental car. It is a 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid and I love it a little too much.
I love the quiet, peaceful driving. I love the comfortable seats that cradle me and let my feet reach the pedals with ease. Most of all, I love that the size of the car matches the new size of my family.
So, I am no longer impatient for my mini-van to be returned to me. That’s one thing that I can have patience in.
