This is so true. I've caught myself complaining before when my Internet is slow.
We live in a generation of instant gratification. I remember when there were party lines. We'd have to wait until our neighbors were done talking on their phones before we could make a call...
One time my cousin and I were making crank phone calls and a guy (on the party line) said he wasn't going to hang up his phone so that he could talk to our parents.
On our side of the line, simply hanging up wouldn't disconnect. If our parents picked up their phone, they would find a connection to his home. Eventually he had to hang up to free the line for his neighbors and we got away. After that, we never made a crank phone call again!
