    a class and having a problem there, two minutes can be significant.  What if it makes you miss a connection to another bus? Maybe you needed the rest of your 5 winks.

    It is an invasion of time, personal thoughts that may be preparation for where you are going. And they have to realize it is a stress hormone trigger. So kind to rile someone up and let them have to take a test or give a presentation with an extra jolt of adrenalin.

     I reject the comparison to protesters for political causes. They are much more considerate and it is about something that affects all citizens.

    It is really disrespectful to impose your beliefs like that on other people without even asking. I don't try to force mine on anyone and I also don't condemn others for their beliefs.  When they start acting on them in harmful ways, I do speak up.

    Yes we have to deal with interruptions and delays, with anger and stress hormones that get triggered because they are inevitable if you go out in the world. That is a piece we tend not to use enough. The emotions do give us the energy to do something, so that the problem will not recur.

    Venting is part of the process. Unloads some hormones, helps your mind grapple with the problem, may produce action plans.
