Is this abnormally impatient? My dad is like this, and I learned not to ask him something 3 X, and now I realize I am the same.
Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than, less than perfect
I've blown up on her a couple of times in the past few years. So has my daughter. Every time it was because we were pushed WAY beyond our boundaries and she just wouldn't let up.
I've found that if I just get quiet, look her in the eye, and say "what part of NO don't you understand", that she will finally get it. I know it sounds kind of rude, but it's the only way to get through her "me, me, ME!!!" attitude.
Anyway......if someone has pushed your buttons 3X, I think they should expect an ass chewing.
God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to
change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.
The first time (rarely the second) I say it, is the time for a discussion if they feel I'm being unreasonable and we need to compromise.
The 3rd time I kick them to the curb. I don't need that crap in my life.
