Patience at the end of Mass

For the closing song yesterday at Mass, we sang "Jesus Christ is Risen Today."

I normally don't leave until we're finished singing, and most people at Mass wait as well. Yesterday, I was seated at the edge of the pew, normally where I sit. There was one guy seated between me and a couple. We were on the last verse, when he began to push his way out. Not wanting a confrontation, I stepped out into the aisle to let him pass.

But why can't people learn to be patient. We were on the last verse! Couldn't he have waited a few more seconds?
