Senior Citizen Needs Patience ASAP

I am quickly learning how desperately I need more patience — with clerks in the stores, with family and friends, with the television set, but most of all with myself! I think of the old prayer, “Lord send me patience and I want it right now!”

Very often I remind myself of this lady —

“WHERE is my SUNDAY paper?!” The irate customer calling the newspaper office, loudly demanded to know where her Sunday edition was.
“Madam”, said the newspaper employee, “today is Saturday. The Sunday paper is not delivered until tomorrow, on SUNDAY”.
There was quite a long pause on the other end of the phone, followed by a ray of recognition as she was heard to mutter, “Well, s***, so that’s why no one was at church.”
