Have you ever been waiting for something/someone?? How long you have been waiting for? What are you waiting for? For how long you will keep waiting if your friend is late?? did you ever leave your friend just because he.she is late?? 'Everybody will have to wait for something everyday, some people are quite patient when they are waiting but others are not,how about you'??

I have been waiting a lot for many things. I am quite patient when waiting. I never left anyone just for beeing late. I think I have waited about an hour for a friend that is late. Usually I will get a hold of them on the mobile phone so i know how long it is going to be. The longest i have been waiting for something is two years. I waited for an answer to my disability case.

I do not wait for someone for more than 15 minutes if they don't call me and let me know they will be late. i think its rude and just plain mean. I have a cell phone and I make sure they have the number. So they can call me and tell me they are running late or they can miss me. I always try to be somewhere at least ten minutes early and when i do occasionally (very occasional) run late. I always call.

I am not a patient person. I will not wait long when I tell someone I will be some where I am never never late so I expect the same from others. Funny story when I went to the mall with our son he was so bad at making every one wait for him, I told him I was going to the car and if he was not out in 5 minutes I was leaving and he would have to walk home. Well guess what he made me wait longer. I did not leave him there but I taught him a lesson I moved the car and watched him when he finally came out I let him walk around the parking lot for awhile then I finally picked him up. I told him 5 minutes means 5 minutes. I know this sounds mean but he had such a bad habit of making every one wait for him, by the way he was about 16 and could have easily found his way home but it would have been a really long walk. This did not break him of this habit, he is 21 now and syill likes to make people wait.

Yes, I've been waiting for something/someone and even made then wait for me too... I don't remember when's the longest time I've ever waited, but so far, I've always waited till my friends arrive or till they call me to tell me they can't make it.. then i think the longest i've ever waited for is always my results.. It always take a long time to reach me.. And I always have this uneasiness in my stomach when they finally arrive... luckily my results were alright..

sweetie, we all have to wait in our lives, only thing is that some have to wait less and some for long. personally speaking, i just hate waiting for anyone, i hate it when when someone stands me up. it hardly happens though. however, waiting could be sweet aswell. the sweetest being the times when i wait for my loved ones to come back, to return from far after a long long time. the countdown never seems moving and i just pine for seconds. it's annoyingly sweet for i know i will get to meet my dear ones soon. having said this easuy888, the most terrible wait i had only one time in my life and i would never forget that. it was the spring time and with all good things around my family had an emergency, my father having suffered an heart attack was admitted to hospital and trust me, that was the toughest, saddest and the most anxious wait. we waited, waited and waited till he actually returned home after almost a fornight which seemed 15 years!!!

I think,for sometimes,waiting for somebody is really a happy thing.If you are waiting for your wife/hasband,and you are going to enjoy a happy time in a park,you must be happy when you wait for her/him.

Guilty! I'm guilty a charged! I don't know how many times I've donr that and still managed to stay friends with that person. I never really had much tolerance for someone who was late meeting me. Then again it depends on the situation. If the weather, distance of where you're coming from, the time of our meet permits the most I'll wait for someone is an hour and usually I'll give a grace period. But, if you've got a car and I get there before you do... ooopsy! If you're a hot date I might be nice, which would depend on who you are or what you look like.... hey, just being honest. So yeah, it would depend on a lot of things that day we meet. If I was waiting for someone that looked the woman in your avatar I would most likely wait at least an hour or two. I could be a glutten for punishment! Just for that day though! After that you're going to have to keep me impressed until one of us gives up.

We are allw aiting for something or the other. Maybe its just waiting for a friend - maybe its waiting for something much more important. As for me - I am waiting for my life to restart. It was going gr8 a while back but in the last 3 years i feel like Im stuck in a rut. So imw aiting for an opportunity to restart my life - waiting for a better job to come along, waiting to earn more money, waiting to meet that special someone.

The bible says this about waiting on the lord in Isaiah40:31 "Those who wait on the lord shall be renewed in strength.They shall soar like eagles.They will run but never get tired.They shall walk but never faint."Therefore one should wait on the lord.His timing is the best.I too am waiting on the lord.I have been suffering from MND(Motor Neurone Disease).But I am still waiting on him and have full faith that he and his timing will never fail.
