I'm looking for a word which describes the resolution of patience.

Example 1: If someone is waiting (being patient) in a room for his/her name to be called and it finally happens.

This also might include the act of running out of patience

Example 2: If someone is waiting (being patient) in a room for his/her name to be called and the office closes before the patient is called and the patient is forced to leave.

What is that resolution or action called?

  • I think this is closer to what I was asking, that is, the more generic relief of patience, not just the positive result of being patient. Jun 16, 2014 at 15:12
