Sometimes I think I have too much patience with Yoko. Lisa is so quick in understanding everything and Yoko 'takes advantage' of her 'introvertness' I always feel like helping her and carrying her, but I should let go, she gives me signs for it. I was actually mad at her earlier!! :'(

If I happened to become impatient with someone, I likely would lose my temper as well.

Here in the colonies we have great patience for foggy Brits
forced to endure their closeted existences back there in the 1850s!

Patience varies by a magnitude dependant upon time of the month - from hours to milliseconds.
