Waiting

3-13-13 006

I don’t know about you, but I’m a very impatient kinda guy.   I hate waiting for something to happen. I don’t like standing in lines.  And I can’t stand it when something I want isn’t happening right now, or right there where I want it.

Maybe that’s a character flaw, or as The Wife says. “A lesson I’ve yet to learn”. Who knows?  But what I do know is: I’m not twenty years old anymore, and I’m running out of time waiting for shit to happen.  That’s why I took Social Security early at age 62, instead of waiting till my ‘full retirement age’ at age 66.  And that’s why I’m glad I’m no longer working full-time and retired from Probationland bullshit nine years ago.  Couldn’t wait to get outta that place.  [We won’t discuss the fact that I’m right back there working part-time, fightin’ crime (but not in my prime, yet still workin’ with slime, but that’s just fine, I’m doin’ it on their dime).  Guess ya can’t get some stuff outta your system no matter how hard ya try].

  1. I love your sketches soooooooo much! I can’t get enough of how quirky and cool they are.
    T-shirts?
    Mugs?
    Prints?
    I’ll take em all.

  2. I get impatient standing in lines too but I have all the time in the world standing on my back porch and watching the squirrels and birds that inhabit my backyard. 🙂 Ain’t early retirement grand.

  3. Batman never retires

  4. Someone has to save the world, Hansi! : )
    I love those “waiting” gestures.

  5. I see you shave your legs. That’s very telling. 😛

  6. It’s an old fart thing…..LOL

  7. Have you ever read this poem? It was written in 1958. In some ways it was prophetic and in other ways as true today as back then:

    I’ll be 60 this year. And still working for awhile. If I can quit in 2 years, that even might be too long to wait. There is so much I’d rather do than sit in that cubicle all day. Ugh.

    Love the sketches!

  9. I can’t believe that your wife believes you have learned patience … after all, consider the kitchen project as evidence … and I anxiously await the infomercial for your T-Shirts.

  10. Waiting in line ? Come to Miami and get your medicine at Walgreens. All the immergrants are ahead of you. This one’s insurance has expired, this one has no ID, this one’s debit card has no balance, next one tries to write a check, next one has to run to car for the 78 cents more for product, next one has 4 screaming kids, next one no English, next one picking up for aunt but doesn’t know her address or phone….Mail order medicine for me only please.
