Yeah, I get that, too. Mine is always in a humanities subject context.
What's funny is that I do this to my husband. I have no patience, while my husband is very patient. I'll hand him off computer issues or puzzle issues when I've lost patience with it. (Except I don't say "Do this, you're smart." I say "You built the fucking network. Please fix it before I throw my laptop through the wall, because this is pissing me off.")
