It's often said that patience is a virtue, but Interparcel's online game makes it possible to test your patience and measure just how much of a virtue you find it to be. In the digital world where just about anything is at your fingertips, it's no surprise that attention spans are shorter than ever. Rather than conducting a formal research study, this parcel delivery brand set up an online experience to see what happens when you're left waiting.

The Interparcel Patience site presents a mock test that seems to load forever. Users have the option to "reload" or "quit" and either option will conclude the test and tell you that you're impatient. This may just be a fun online test, but it's a good reminder that delivery companies are often working as as fast as humanly possible to get items to you.
