The Five Most Annoying Things That Make Us Wait . . . and Traffic Is #1
A study earlier this week found we’re less patient than ever. The average American can only wait 16 seconds for a website to load before they get frustrated. But what’s the MOST annoying thing we have to wait for?
A new survey had 3,000 people rank the most annoying waits they have to deal with. And you might be in the middle of #1 right now . . .
1. Sitting in traffic.
2. Being stuck on hold with customer service.
3. Waiting in line at the DMV.
4. Waiting for your food at a restaurant.
5. Waiting to use a public restroom.
The survey also asked a few other questions about customer service. Specifically about having to sit on hold for a long time.
39% of Americans said they’d rather watch water boil . . . 30% would rather watch paint dry . . . and 32% would rather give up sex for one week. (Which would just be a normal week for me.)
