Depends on my mood or the situation! For example, this huge guy in a Mobile shopping cart was purchasing 55 items; the problem was he went in the purchase lane for 20 items or less! What bothered me the most was the cashier lady allowed this to happen. I only had 4 items waiting in this short but long line. Behind me another fat customer in a mobile cart with a stack of items was waiting! Can't ppl read or understand what 20 items or less means?! If I had 21 items in this line the cashier would give me a dirty look! Looking @ the items these obese customers were buying gave me a BIG picture of how they got into the condition they were in!

I think it depends on the scenario. If I'm waiting for a restaurant and they are clearly busy, then I'd definitely be willing to wait longer than say they were slow and I'm just sitting in the waiting room alone. If I'm at least acknowledged, then it changes everything. If I'm at a grocery store and I'm only getting one item and there's only one line open, with 15 people in it, I'd probably put the item down and just go somewhere else. It all depends on the service I'm receiving.

Depend on the situation though.  But if something that is stupid like when people stand there ask so many stupid questions to the cashier and holding the line.  Or if you were in line and the person in font of you talking to the cashier and make you wait.  That I would say something otherwise nothing to be patient and wait. :)

Patience is a virtue, so I guess it depends how virtuous you are 8)  I am very patient, you get used to it when you are surrounded by idiots and snowflakes :bad: 8)
