In my view

Why IS is that wherever you go people seem to be in a desperate hurry?

It doesn’t matter what you are doing, whether it is out at the shops or out for a drive, people seem to be in a rush to be somewhere else.

At the supermarket folk appear to want to be served instantly and get annoyed if they have to stand in a queue, even if it’s just for a couple of minutes.

Many will then take their frustrations out on the poor shop worker who, I am sure, is trying to get through the day’s work as quickly as possible.

Often they do have to take a wee bit longer. If an elderly person is going through the checkout it is often the only time during the day that they will have a conversation with anyone and I am sure wherever you need to be it can wait a few minutes to allow this conversation to happen.

What really annoys me is when I am out driving and someone is in such a hurry that they drive right up to the rear of your car.

I am not sure what they think this will achieve but rest assured it isn’t going to make me want to go faster.

It is always good that when they do overtake you and screech away that when you hit the next set of traffic lights you can often end up sitting right behind them in the queue.

I just don’t understand why we always have to be rushing about.

I am sure people won’t mind if we end up a few minutes late.
