    Not all people but nowadays people dont have a long attention span.

    And dont have patience they want everything yesterday, and quite often when a new mobile phone comes out they upgrade because there friends have done so so they feel they must do even if they have had the phone only a few months.

    and quite a lot of things now are not built to
    last e.g washing machines etc.

    I sometimes get up in the morning and almost forget what day of the week it is - I have to think what day it was yesterday so that I can link today with that day. And I even think sometimes: "is it the 22nd or the 23rd today?" I hope that this isn't the shape of my health in years to come now I have slowed down slightly.

    I am someone who has very little patience - I try and train myself to be patient, (almost as some sort of punishment), and sometimes it backfires while at other times I get rewarded for doing so. Take for granted waiting for an appointment - I just stare at the ceiling until I get seen.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Well, it certainly wasn't Eric Morecambe on the other end of the line for obvious reasons as he went the year before...

    Funnily enough, I always think of Reg Varney - not when I am a passenger on a bus, but when I use a cashpoint.

    I can never get used to mobile phones even though I have one - I am someone who is still very much on a landline.

    I havenít had a land line phone for years. Seems pointless when I have a mobile and I got too many irritating nuisance calls when I had a land line phone, even when I asked to have such calls blocked. I rarely get them on the mobile.

    At least (as we have been discussing on the Odeon cinema thread) that I wouldn't be caught out if a mobile phone went off - mind you, I don't go to the cinema much these days either.
