I sometimes think we are too, however

God determines the times and seasons. As for why we don't just demand it right here, right now...Some see Jesus as the fulfillment of all the promises spiritually, thus do not necessarily hold out for the physical fulfillment as well. Many others see the 1000 year reign of Jesus at the end of the Armageddon war as the fulfillment, so we are content to wait it out, as we work for justice in the meantime.

Many of Jesus' parables speak of working while you wait for His return.
Peter, one of the disciples who was closest to Him on Earth, said:

Dear friends, He is not slow in keeping His promises, as some understand slowness, He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9, for the full statement, back up to the beginning of the chapter, and read to the end of the book)
