11 Life Struggles Of Women Who Are Impatient AF

Women who are impatient know what it’s like to want everything and everyone in the entire world to just hurry the hell up and get on with it—”it” being everything from getting out of the middle of the sidewalk when we’re trying to walk to putting a ring on our fingers. If you’re someone who gets irritated by the slowpokes of the world, you’ll probably relate to these struggles.

  1. Slow walkers make you want to rip your hair out. Seriously, who walks this slow?! When people take a leisurely Sunday stroll in front of you when you have someplace to be (or even when you don’t), you have to fight the urge to knock them over so you can get buy.
  2. You seriously lose your cool when someone doesn’t text you back in, like, .5 seconds. You know that pretty much everyone is attached to their phones 24/7, so there’s really no excuse for not texting you back in a timely manner, which you consider being within two to three minutes.
  3. Waiting for your food to come at a restaurant is like a slow death. The restaurant is crowded and yeah, you’re not the only person waiting for your food, but you’re starving and you swear you placed your order, like, an hour ago. How long does it take to cook some pasta, FFS?
  4. Nothing annoys you more than the guy you’re dating dragging his heels on defining the relationship. You’ve been dating for weeks and dropping serious hints about wanting him to be your official BF but he doesn’t seem to be getting it. Is he really that thick-skulled or is he just a jerk? Hurry up and get with it!
  5. Going shopping with a friend when you’re not buying anything yourself sucks hard. You came along because your BFF needed a new outfit for a date she’s going on this weekend. You’re psyched for her and all, you just wish she’d pick something so you could get out of there. How many dresses does she need to try on?
  6. Trying to explain to a parent or grandparent how to use technology is pure torture. No matter how many times you try to explain to your mom that “LOL” doesn’t mean “lots of love,” she still doesn’t get it. Watching her touch type as she squints over her bifocals is enough to give you an aneurysm.
  7. Movie, book, and album releases you’ve been looking forward to forever need to hurry the hell up. Seriously, you’ve been waiting for the final season of Game of Thrones since April. Does HBO think you have nothing better to do with your life than wait around for some Jon Snow action? How about Lady Gaga’s new album? You’ll probably be collecting retirement before that thing comes out.
  8. Having to sit through opening acts at concerts drives you insane. You came to see Drake, so why do you have to sit through what feels like a million hours of some no-name artists you have no interest in before the main act? You’ve been in your seat since doors opened, so let’s get this party started already!
  9. Ordering stuff online and having to wait days for it to arrive irritates TF out of you. With the exception of Amazon Prime (which is still too long of a wait, to be honest), you have a love/hate relationship with online shopping. It’s cheaper, there’s a bigger selection, and you don’t have to leave your house. Those are all good things. However, waiting days on end and obsessively tracking the progress of your package is emotional turmoil that no one should have to go through.
  10. Getting stuck in heavy traffic is the stuff nightmares are made of. You just want to get where you’re going but there are all these stupid cars in the way at a total stand-still. Coming home from work during rush-hour or hitting an unexpected delay because of construction is enough to make you want to scream.
  11. Watching customer service people chat to each other instead of serve you makes you want to Hulk out. Sure, you know retail jobs suck and sometimes having fun with your colleagues is the only thing that gets you through a long shift, but still, you have places to be and things to do. Chop chop, people! You want your Starbucks order basically before you’ve even told the barista what you want. Where’s the issue?
  12. Keeping your friends’/partner’s/family members’ gifts a secret until you can give them is a killer. You love the people you’re closest to and want to treat them to something they’ve been wanting for a long time. Unfortunately, you’ve bought it weeks or sometimes even months in advance and you can’t believe you have to keep your big mouth shut so you don’t ruin the surprise. It’s total BS.
