The art of waiting
"I have no idea how much time the average human adult spends waiting for things, but I am prepared to wager a small amount that it is a substantial part of his/her life. In any given interaction between two or more people which requires them to be in a specific place at a specific time, waiting will form a key part. At the tube station, in the coffee shop, outside the cinema – even behind the bike sheds when you were younger – there is always waiting.
The first thing to remember about waiting is that it is invariably someone else's fault. You wouldn't be waiting if they had decided to stop being useless, selfish, time-wasting morons who don't really deserve to be going to the concert/film/play/meal with you in the first place. Also, they are sufficiently annoying that they are keeping you waiting. As any fool can see, you are the person who should be keeping them waiting. We hold this to be self-evident."
Does this look anything like it?
