I applaud Mike Francesa of WFAN for this call. There is nothing I hate more than people who are slow story tellers. If I had an action figure, it would come with the ability to do that circular hand motion that tells people "let's get on with it" (and karate kicking motion for the resultant dirty looks I draw).
Topping it off is the customary "Hey, how's it going" from the caller, which most radio callers absentmindedly do. Let me let you in on a secret: they don't care how you are doing when they say that. It is obvious they are just using that time to organize their thoughts before speaking...something that could be done before the call or perhaps during the 80 hours they are on hold.
Look, it's not that I'm impatient, but rather that my time is just so much more important than everyone else's. The sooner the world can see this, the better off the world will be. Look for those two last sentences on my campaign poster when I run for President in 2012.
