|Damn you Netflix!|
This doesn't just confine itself to entertainment. Although I would like to add that reading has taken a hit as well. People have a lot of difficulty sticking to a long book, and even more difficulty sticking to a series. I noticed that myself again as I read two seven-book long series' in a row and found it to be difficult. I'd probably find it murderous to attempt to write one. Some stories need to be told along a lot of books though.

All of this does spread into society. People get angry about having to wait a few seconds more than they have to wait. They hate waiting at traffic lights whether they're in a car or not. I think it's one reason fast food has become so prevalent and, with it, problems like obesity. People can't be bothered to take the time it takes to cook an actual meal or wait for someone else to cook one. A lot of problems emanate from this lack of patience and it spreads further than people realise.
So take the time. Wait a little longer. Life isn't as short as you think it is. Waiting a few more seconds won't kill you, but getting angry about it will thanks to high blood pressure.
