Stop It

Well the squirrel has a point

     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]  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.
