To graciously accept all the indecencies and indignities that your current situation throws at you with a quiet grace and a pleasant smile; all the while patiently digging your way out of that situation with a spoon. Then one day everyone around looks up and notices that you are suddenly not there anymore, having escaped the bounds of your unpleasant environment and escaped to a better place.
