Patience-Is it just me?
Is it just me or does there seem to be a crazy rash of people posting about placing an order for something and having absolutely no patience in it's arrival?
Is it a generational thing?

I am so glad I am not a retailer of radio control helicopter stuff. The expectations of some people that post here seem so unreasonable to me.

I like to have a tracking # from the seller and you can tell when its suppose to arrive, I may even give it a day or 2 late before I make any inquires. It does seem that some are a little over anxious or impatient.Bill Whittaker

I think it is mostly a generation thing. I have everything shipped to an APO so I'm used to waiting.

I'd agree that it's partly a generational thing but I run into older people that act the same...

We got guys on this forum with little useful experience to contribute and 8,000 posts that make them a "master"....always talking about what they wouldn't buy or posting 'subscribed' and quoting everyone under the sun instead of coming up with their own words. That annoys me more than the whiners that didn't get their part in 30 minutes and expect it to now be free...

On top of it, since the hobby industry is in the dumps worse than any time anyone has seen since the early 1980s, there's a super sale every other day, setting precedent..expectation, of instant gratification.

Get real!

There's quite a few factors. I think the biggest one is people know if they bitch and whine about something others will too. All the Debby downers come out of the woodwork and suddenly you have 5 pages of vaginitisHeli-itis sufferer.

I often forget I ordered something right after I ordered it.
Then, I get a pleasant surprize when it shows up.

Shipping is so fast and dependable these days I have a hard time understanding those who complain. When I was a kid, this stuff really didn't even exist, much less ship overnight. There was no internet to shop on. To wait a few days is actually pleasant for me. Kind of like being almost Christmas.I love the smell of nitro in the morning.
