Now there are things that make me impatient, things that really irritates me and things I find difficult to understand.

One of the things that make me impatient and that irritates me is not being able to understand.

Like for instance; I ordered a Christmas gift from a company. In the course of conversation the person on-line mentioned he was in PA, I’d called his company in NY. He said that the item requested was warehoused in K.C. Ks. It would take six days for the item to arrive to me. About two hundred miles.

Later, I found I wanted an additional something to go with the first item. I browsed the web and selected another company, this one on the West Coast. I called them and in the course of the conversation I found I was talking with a fellow in Utah. I asked, having looked closely at the web site during the conversation if his company was related to the first company (I mentioned names) and he said, “Yes. We’re both owned by (and named the holding company). He continued; your order is filed and will be shipped soon, from K.C. Ks, and you will get it in about five days.

I order yet another item from Amazon. Amazon, famous for not talking to anyone,Sent me a notification that my order had been received, then one that my order had been shipped (on the Sunday following the Friday order in-put) and yet another that my order could be tracked and should arrive on 30 Nov.

I remain impatient, that last one was for me and its lack is severly hampering my efforts to progress in my new hobby.

Well, Sir.

I came across this, this morning:

Native makes unique wedding dress by hand

Abbey Ramirez-Bodley crocheted her own wedding dress with the help of her aunt, Jennifer Wollard. Dress. Courtesy photo. Dress. The dress took Ramirez-Bodley eight months and more than two miles of yarn to crochet.

The picture will em-biggen to shown details.

I am humble in the face of patience. Lesson’s in waiting quietly and occupying oneself with available work is always humbling.

I do wish, however, that 30 Nov would get here soon.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
