They are in your work place, your family and in your social groups. The people that no one gets along with. The intolerant ones.
I have found that the most impatient people are usually the most selfish. Another thing is they often don't listen to what you have to say. They are too busy thinking about what they have to do. They want to talk a lot, but they don't want to listen.
It also seems like when they do listen, they only hear what they want to hear and go on with their own thoughts.
These kind of people will not tolerate having to wait on you for much of anything. They are mostly impatient with children. It shows on their own kids as well as others. They have very intolerant personalities. They constantly demand respect, but to get them to respect you is a whole new ballgame. A game that will probably be lost!
Tell yourself that you are not going to let them walk all over you anymore! Stand up to them once and for all. If they start treating you bad, say, "I don't know what is wrong with you at this moment, but I don't deserve this treatment."
Next time they are rushing you, it might be best to just keep quiet, unless they are being really rude then you can remind them again. "I'm sorry I'm not quite ready, but I don't deserve the way you are treating me over it".
People like this usually will either be quiet or they will argue. Obvious point right? Well, if they do want to argue it is best not to respond. They just want to be right. Remember these people are very selfish. They have a lot of pride and they will try to belittle you. Sometimes the best words said are no words at all.
I know it might bother you for awhile to not argue back, but it is worth it in the long run. The impatient person usually has a chip on their shoulder. They come in expecting things to be a certain way and when they are not, they tend to explode. If they don't explode, you can see it on their faces.
You cannot change them, but you can change how you react. That is the most important thing.
It is also biblical for us to react in a proper way.
You can tell them their behavior is going to drive people away. Most of the time these people have unresolved anger issues or they were raised by someone who was impatient. I would tell them that maybe they need counseling or classes on how to overcome anger issues.
Impatient people are very clever. They always have these little tricks up their sleeves. They will say, I'm just trying to follow the rules, or we have priorities. While that might be "true", they do not have to treat you bad over it do they? It's no excuse for making other people feel bad.
