Overheard in Rescue 1
"I've figured out what went wrong with this country."
"And what, pray tell, is that?"
"Waiting teaches patience Nobody has any patience anymore. Everybody wants it now."
"And if you can't wait?"
"That, my friend, teaches humility."
"Patience and humility are the answer then?"
"We had one bathroom and four kids. My dad was in the shower from 6:30 till seven. Monday thru Friday. Nobody entered. Nobody knocked. Nobody whined, or begged or pleaded to get in. We learned patience and humility. And we learned how to organize our time. It was brilliant. Lesson taught without a single word being said."
"And the ability to piss and shit at will has ruined the country?"
"Exactly. Now you're getting it. Now step on it, I've got to go."
"You can't wait?"
"Not anymore. Age teaches humility too."
"You must have eternal humbleness hidden somewhere then. You've had plenty of time to acquire it."
"Hurry up, I'm losing my patience."
