Definition of Patience for Market Traders


the quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like.

a market trader standing for hour after hour at his/her stall during tough economic times, answering endless questions, (most commonly “Will you be here next week?” or “Where are the toilets?), while working out how to meet rising business and living expenses, and avoiding the temptation of inappropriate distractions like mobile phone games, all with a smile, a nod, and complete denial of the utter boredom and frustrations of retailing when customers simply refuse to spend.
