    Hello~~~

    This is the context

    ======
    The play area was bordered by wood-slat benches where old-country
    people sat cracking roasted watermelon seeds with their golden teeth and
    scttering the husks to an impatient gathreing of gurgling pigeons.
    ======

    What does "impatient" mean@@?

    Thanks for your helping^^
