I'm an impatient guy, I suppose, but still. After a while, patience just means that you have to keep asking people politely to move out of the way. I'd prefer a house where the traffic patterns were such that people didn't have to clog the choke points, and so didn't have to be asked to move all the time.
All of which tells you why I'm designing my retirement cottage on an open plan as much as possible. I'm tired of living in Chinese puzzle boxes.
