Is Fast Getting Faster?

I’m always amused by how impatient everyone has become. No one wants to wait for anything anymore. Merchants are trying to provide services as quickly as possible, yet people still complain when it takes more than five minutes to get a burger and fries. I’ve watched people get their fast food and eat it even faster. It’s as if they are having a road race with themselves. No wonder antacids are a huge business.

Our lives have become an endless parade of tasks that have to be accomplished at lightning speed. Your dry cleaning can be picked up in less than 24 hours. Your eyeglass prescription can be filled in 20 minutes. Your cholesterol screening can take five minutes at a health fair while your texting someone with the other hand. After all, you have to tell someone what you’re doing.

You can have your thighs reshaped during lunch and your breasts lifted while you’re having dinner. If that’s not to your liking, you can have a mini-tuck at your local gas station while you’re filling your tank and buying groceries for dinner. Need a shrink but don’t have time? Well, you can call one up on your way to doing errands.

Every month or so, a new cell phone hits the market. I’m getting incredibly confused as to which one does what and why. How much is too much?

Maybe I’m a dinosaur ready to become an exhibit in the Smithsonian, but I really don’t care to run around and go berserk. How about you?

Plowing ahead, living from task to task is great for a family of ants. But it’s much more fun to watch the ants than to be one.
