Frustration and patience-

Let me start by saying patience is not my strong point.  As a matter of fact, if I were going to make a list of my shortfalls (and that list would be longer than I'd like to admit) the lack of patience would be at the top.

I've accomplished a lot of things.  And because of that, there are times when I feel I can do anything.  I'm so smart.

Uh, not so much.

I have spent the last hour and fifteen minutes trying to figure out how to put a Paypal button on my website so all you lovely people would have the option of purchasing autographed copies of Luthor without having to send me a check.  The instructions on the Paypal site seemed easy enough, but when it came right down to it, I was, and still am, missing one important element to make the endeavor a success.
And for the life of me I can't freakin figure the shit out!

I hate having to bother other people to do things for me.  But alas, it looks like I will have to bow down again and beg for assistance. 

It's frustrating though.  I like to be able to do things for myself.  I know we all need help with things every once in a while, I'm not ignorant to that fact, but when my need for assistance falls upon me too often, that's when it gets me down.

I have been told in the past that I'm not patient enough, and I accept that.  And perhaps I would be able to eventually figure things out on my own in due time if I were more patient.  But there are times when I feel like that annoying customer at a service window who has one problem after another, and the line behind that customer keeps growing and growing and growing.  All  the other things I have to get done and aren't getting done because I'm tied up with a certain problem are those other customers who are waiting in line.  And that freakin line keeps growing because I can't get this stupid thing done and it's holding me up AND I JUST CAN'T DO IT, AND IT'S MAKING ME CRAZY!
