We've nothing to lose but your wings and my frown

As virtues go, patience has never been one that I've possessed in abundance. By the nature of my job, my ability to stay calm in a situation has improved, to be sure, but in a very situation-specific way: I give kids with disabilities a lot of slack, whereas typical kids who are really just brats can push me over the edge with very little provocation.

Recently, I've encountered a lot of "hurry up and wait" roadblocks. Once I decided to move to PDX, it was "hurry up and wait to find a job". Once said job was secured, I had to "hurry up and wait for moving day to roll around". And now? Hurry up and wait for... something I can't quite put my finger on. That may actually be more frustrating than trying to be patient for whatever 'it' is.

Oh my gosh, I was doing an observation in a 6th grade class today when the teacher stepped out for a few minutes. I had to force myself to take deep breaths and not scream at and/or backhand the little brats. I definitely lost all hope for humanity for a little while.
