The Inconvenience of Convenience

"I couldn't function without my cell phone."

"Why is this computer moving SO slow..."!" (expressed after 5 seconds of waiting)

"I don't understand why I haven't lost more weight..." (2 weeks in the pursuit sans exercise)

"What do you mean you can't fit me in your schedule NOW?"

"I don't have time to relax...and if I did, I don't think I could...I've got so much to do."
