    LOL! Okay, that's not going to work!
    Oh my word, what motivation to move to a different country!lol
    You'll have to pick a state that doesn't get too cold. I'm in Vermont and last winter was obviously a shock to my system as it never get that cold or snows in SA. And I worked outside. I enjoyed roughing it, though.

    Vermont has to be one of our coolest states though.... no crime, nice people, open-minded environment, beautiful in the non-winter time...

    Yes, it's very beautiful and it's been very good to be in these surroundings for the last year. It's odd to not have been near a city for so long, but like I said, good.

    Lol! Er...yes.
    I'd love to work on a farm for a season. I think there are apple farms here too.
    Yes, some comfort after a day of roughing it, at least.

    I usually have plenty of patience. Like you (OP) said, I have no problems with standing in a long line (other than all the people, but the time isn't a problem).

    I rarely feel bored, in fact I can always think of stuff to do, but I am also hardly ever excited, either. My family says it's a rare occasion when I'm genuinely excited about something.

    Your restaurant example in particular I wouldn't do. I would probably hold my tongue, unless it got unexplainably bad, at which point I would ask politely how to fix it.
    Example: At Taco Bell, I ordered a beef burrito with some friends. When I sat down to eat, I realized they had given me a chicken burrito, which costs significantly more money. On my receipt, it said "chicken burrito", so it was the cashier's mistake, not the kitchen workers'.
    At this point, my friends said I should be pissed, and should demand that they re-do my order. I told them it wasn't that big of a deal, but I got up and settled it with the cashier. I said, "Excuse me, I'm sorry to bother you, but I ordered beef, and you must have typed in chicken by mistake. Could I get that fixed?" So they redid my order, gave me the extra change ($), and I said, "Thanks, I'm really sorry to make a fuss about this." My friends were sitting there wondering why I'd been so nice to them, when I'm the customer and they're supposed to serve me.

    As for the OP, in some ways I'm similar and in some ways I'm not.

    I do get road rage...well, not always rage, but I do become very impatient while driving. I live in/near a city that has terrible traffic problems, and it feels like every day is a test of my sanity. After a year and a half of driving through it though I think I've eventually just become jaded to the process.

    Waiting in a line doesn't really bother me...it's slightly irritating, but I've made it a habit to always carry entertainment with me -- either my ipod, homework, a book, or if I'm with someone else I don't mind waiting at all.

    Service at restaurants, I don't demand good service. If the person messes up, I'm very likely to just let it slide so long as it doesn't set me back financially. If I do bother to correct the problem, I'm usually apologetic about it.

    As for being bored, it doesn't happen too often, but I can most definitely go stir-crazy. I can sit in the house for about a day and a half (2 days max) before I start to get restless.

    I rarely ever feel bored and I am very very patient and tolerant. Unless I suddenly decide that you suck and are hopeless, and then I won't be very patient or tolerant. But it takes a lot to get to that point.

    I am exactly the same. The last time I was genuinely excited was when I got my new hookah, oh and the Hollywood Undead concert. Otherwise I am very difficult to get excited.

    It has to be terrible for me to tear into a server, but knowing how the system works I'm able to be more aggressive about things and see the typical results. There is an art to complaining.

    I can agree. I can stand about three days before I absolutely HAVE to get out of the house.

    I'm assume you're referring to a server at a restaurant, lol.

    My mother is an ISTJ and my wife is an ISFJ. I never hear either complaining about being bored. They seem to take joy in the day-to-day of what life brings them. I wish I were so fortunate. Work is often an agony of boredom for me, unless I happen to be working on a particularly engaging project. That would explain why I spend so much time online.
