Totally agree.... I have been guilty of all three of these, but I don't think I (or anyone) should ever put other's lives in danger because of our impatience. Sure, I've I called safe (often) when I wanted to hurry up things with a slow partner, and I knew I was actually but not technically safe, but I've never taken anyone off belay because of impatience. Poor communication and distraction do happen... we're human, but impatience (not saying this happened here) seems very different and inexcusable from the other two reasons.
