Instant Gratification

I am not going to lie – I am a big fan of instant gratification.  Just call me Veruca in “Charlie in the Chocolate Factory” – I want it now!  One of my friends calls it the Sod-It Syndrome.  She can’t wait for grass to grow, she would rather have sod.  I could provide endless examples of my impatience and you know how I love a good list.  However, I will refrain this time… nah!

  • I sometimes inadvertently get drunk trying to reach the happy buzz place to quickly
  • I have turned myself orange more than once trying to achieve a dark spray on tan in 24 hours that usually takes a week
  • I invent scheduling conflicts to get my performance reviews back from my manager earlier.
  • I, like most Americans, have done my share of accumulating debt in college because I couldn’t wait for a time when I could afford shopping (or excessive drinking)
  • I researched the earliest pregnancy test because one extra day of waiting was too much for me

The irony is that it drives me nuts when my kids can’t be patient.  Seriously, good things are worth the wait little pumpkins!  (And do as mommy says, not as mommy does!)

So are you a seed or a sod person?

    Sod for sure! I’m notorious for undercooking everything because I can’t wait for it to be fully done cooking. haha

    Actually, that reminds me of these personality tests we had to take at work once. The test was supposed to interpret different aspects of our personality (how social we are, how independent, how patient etc) in order for co-workers and managers to understand each other and work better together. I literally scored a zero on the patience aspect. My little chart was hilarious.

    Sorry for two comments in a row… I clearly was impatient and clicked submit before I was ready.
