I have yet to master the art of patience. On occasion it has shown itself clearly. This caption reminds me of one of those times.
I rarely talk on the phone now days because my voice is softer than it used to be. I used to though handle the personal business calls that I could. Well, one day at work I had to call the health insurance company. A task that I thoroughly hate. Anyways, I told whatever the situation was to the lady on the other end of the line. She started whispering back to me. I know this can be an unconscious response to my soft voice so I told her 'please don't whisper.' She continued to do so and I asked her again to stop it. And again. Maybe it had been a bad day or I had just reached my limit but I banged that phone receiver on my desk two or three times and said 'are you gona stop it now??' [maybe I should have put that in all caps..lol] Well, I must have got my point across because she finished the rest of the phone call in her normal voice.
Patience sometimes just runs out, hopefully you can handle it a little better than me when it does.
