It goes without saying that we all have varying levels of patience. Some people's could rival a saint's whereas other's leave a lot to be desired.

And while impatient people are often criticised, it's important to remember that those same people don't exactly relish having the trait.

Like ingesting poison, the trait generally effects the person who has it more than it effects anyone else.

And here are just 12 examples of this which you'll know only too well if you're impatient AF in everyday life.

1. The Luas doors don't open even though you jabbed that button the minute it lit up.

"I f*cking pressed it. What does it want?"

2. The child dawdling in front of you on the pavement is not at ALL cute.

"Is he taking the p*ss?"

3. The sight of a lunchtime queue makes your stomach muscles clench and your teeth grind.

"Why do they all want what I want? Get some imagination and go somewhere else."

4. Watching a cashier change till roll is enough to make your head explode.

"Give it to me! I'll do it! I'll do it!"

5. Waiting for your iPhone to turn back on after it dies feels like an eternity

"It's my own fault. I let it die. I deserve this."

6. When your lift doesn't arrive despite the fact you've jabbed that button 13 times.


7. Waiting for the arrival of a perpetually late friend legitimately raises your blood pressure.

"She's just so f*cking rude."

8. Trying to watch something online that just keeps on buffering.

"I can't. I cannot put myself through this."

9.  Waiting behind someone at the ATM who acts like they've never encountered one before.

"They've been sent to test me."

10. When a recording on a phone tells you you're next in line, but you know they're lying.

"One more lie and I'm hanging up."

11. Queuing for brunch is your pet hate, and you can't help but stare menacingly at anyone who is already eating.

"Is she for real the way she's dawdling over that cold coffee?"

12. Waiting for your washing machine to finish its cycle so you can get back to living your life is enough to make you weep.

"How have they not come up with five-minute cycles yet?"



Did you know that almost half the women diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year are under the age of 65?

Many of us consider medical check-ups and smear tests as a problem for ‘future me’ to deal with, but with over 315 Irish women diagnosed with the disease every year, it's high-time we started to take notice of our health. 

And one 16-year-old model is urging young women to do just that. 


Bettering myself more and more everyday

Peyton Linafelter began experiencing some unusual symptoms shortly after signing her modelling contract.

Speaking to Fox News she explained: ‘‘I couldn’t keep anything down.’’

‘‘My stomach was a little expanded. But I just thought I was eating a lot of carbs. I didn’t think anything of it… but each week my stomach got bigger and bigger. My lower back hurt a lot and my abdomen was in pain’’ she added.

Peyton went to get herself checked out and on her 16th birthday she was diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer.

‘‘I was in disbelief. I had thought they were in the wrong room or it was a mistake.’’

She immediately began chemotherapy as part of her treatment, and admitted that losing her hair was one of the most devastating parts.

Thankfully, after surgery and treatment, Peyton caught the disease on time.

She has now teamed up with UCHealth for a cancer awareness campaign, and is encouraging young women to go to their doctors if they notice anything unusual, no matter how trivial they think it may be.



There are some things that are uniquely Irish; Tayto crisps, a cuppa tea, our gas mammies, and of course, our signs.

Signs are a weird one, we know, but we're a dab hand at making a poster, and this was totally proved at this year's Euros.

But, even when it comes to serious things, we just can't help but take the mick out of it.

A new poster has gone up outside Body & Soul Festival, where preparations for this weekend are well underway.

The man or woman who is supplying the fences to the festival decided that enough was enough, and they weren't going to have anymore broken fences heading back their way when the weekend's over.

So, instead of putting up something generic such as, "DON'T BREAK FENCE," they put up:


Ah, we love this country.


While you may be addicted to gel nails or nail polish, it’s a good idea to go without sometimes so that you can see if your nails are in good condition. If they’re looking a bit off, it could be a sign of something more serious, so don’t just lash on the polish to cover it up and forget!

Pale nails
If your nails are looking a bit pale it could be a sign of anaemia, so you need to up your intake of iron. Pale nails can also be a sign of early diabetes or liver disease, so it’s worth getting checked out if you are experiencing any other symptoms.

Yellow or thick nails
If your nails are thick and/or yellow, you could have a nail fungus. Get yourself down to the chemist or if it’s particularly bad, book in with your GP to sort it once and for all.

Dark lines
While you may check your skin for any changes, you might forget that your nails can show signs of melanoma as well. If you develop some dark lines on your nails, it’s a good idea to get it checked out.

Grooves and dents
If you’ve noticed grooves and dents in your nails, you could have psoriasis, as people with this condition sometimes develop clusters of cells along the nail that disrupt it’s smoothness. Go to your GP for some cream to sort it out.

Brittle nails
If you find your nails breaking more often than not, you could have a thyroid problem. The thyroid gland produces a hormone that regulate metabolism, energy, and growth, and if it’s not producing enough of the hormone you will run into problems, such as brittle nails or hair loss. A simple blood test can give you a diagnosis.


While your eyes may be the window to your soul, some health experts reckon your feet can say a lot about what’s going on on the inside.

Cold feet
Cold feet could be one of many signs of an underactive thyroid or poor circulation. A simple daily medication can ease symptoms, with a blood test determining if you suffer from the condition.

Frequent foot cramping
Foot cramping can mean dehydration and nutritional deficiencies. If you’re exercising make sure you’re taking in enough water, as dehydration can lead to cramping. Also upping your intake of calcium, potassium and magnesium may help.

A sore that won’t heal
A cut, sore or blister that won’t heal can be warning signs for diabetes or skin cancer.  Go to your doctor if you’re worried and be extra careful when checking your body, paying attention to every inch of skin –  including between toes.

Flaky or itchy skin
This could be a fungal infection, most likely to be athlete’s foot. There are plenty of over the counter remedies to treat the irritable symptoms, and keeping your feet as cool and dry as possible will also help. It could be caused by eczema or psoriasis.

Enlarged big toe
If your big toe becomes suddenly enlarged, it could be your body showing signs of an inflammatory issue, like gout.

Far from only being caused by tight footwear, bunions could actually be an inherited faulty foot structure. Speak to your doctor as surgery is often an option.

Heel pain
This could be a sign of strain on the ligament.  Ease up on intense workouts, and where sensible footwear while the pain eases.



He asks you to hangout
A sure sign that he has no romantic plans for the evening. Even though we can spend hours trying to figure out guy code, sometimes there is no code and your fella simply just wants to hang out.

No touching
If he was remotely attracted to you, he would make some subtle or sweet attempts to embrace you. Sometimes, it can be intentional and sometimes, it can be done subconsciously. But if you give him ample opportunities to make a move on you and he doesn’t oblige, safe to say he’s not interested.

Your one of the guys
If you hang around with his friends a lot, especially if he isn’t there, that’s a sure sign he doesn’t view as a romantic partner. If he was really attracted to you, for the first few weeks anyway he would definitely want to keep you to himself.

No effort
This is hard to tell, as a lot of guys don’t make an effort in general. But if he really liked you, he wouldn’t definitely go out of his way, to woo you off your feet.



Excessive blinking, looking to the left or covering their mouth.

These are all signs someone is telling you fibs.
