I just start off as if it was me that was calling CQ and the other op never knows. I am not impatient with them.
I think you are right about the macros, though, because it does seem to be ops that don’t venture out beyond macros that do this.
In contests it’s a little more confounding because search and pounce macros and running macros should be predetermined.
Another country heard from,
With the non-standard macros that are standard for PSK, I can easily see someone choosing the wrong one. I have done so and hope I didn't offend. I suggest a little more patience.

That this happens:
Him: CQ CQ CQ K1XYZ K1XYZ k
Me: K1XYZ de KG6MZS KG6MZS kn
Him: KG6MZS KG6MZS de K1XYZ K1XYZ K1XYZ kn
You would think we were past that point and they would just get into the QSO without responding like I was the one calling CQ.
I see this in contests too - which is only slightly less annoying that stations that answer a "CQ Test" with the exchange before you acknowledge them.
OK, off the soapbox now…
