“…Just shut up. He doesn’t get it. He’ll never get it. It’s been four hours – the cows can tape something by now…!”
I love this scene from City Slickers. In online discussions with various folks, I try to be like Billy Crystal’s character, and explain things patiently and even repetitively if I have to. Admittedly, I’m often not as nice and diplomatic.
But sometimes I just lose patience and feel more like Bruno Kirby’s character instead.
