I always say I’m the most impatient person in the world.

From the moment I get in my car until I arrive at my destination, I comment on all the annoying and slow drivers. It’s hard to execute delayed gratification.

“C’mon! Really! Can you drive any slower?”

When we plan to leave the house, I’m the type who says, “Let’s go” every second until we actually go.
