Things we desperately wait for

We all have this life in which we are if truth be told, busy doing many things be it working, household chores, family time or sleeping; but together with all these, we all have to spend some time in WAITING.

For what?

Of course, we all wait for our dreams to come true, we wait for all our wishes to be fulfilled, we wait for our kids and ourselves to grow more mature, we wait for getting that leisure time that we can spend without any obligations and so much more….

But then on second thought, I felt we all linger for many more things in our day to day life and then after thinking a bit over it I have jotted down these instances which I feel we all have come across some or other day.

So here are the things which I feel, we desperately wait for:

For the salary - at the end of the month on the salary day, when you have only few bucks left in your account is the time when you actually wait for the salary to be credited which anyways just stays for a while in your account and is spent right from the next moment but still that wait makes you restless; you keep checking your messages even though you know that it has not come;

     For the signal to turn green -  if we are stuck in traffic jam especially in Bangalore we all wait and in fact stare the signal although it shows the timer still we keep on staring it to turn green so that we can move on;

For the food to be served - when we are in a restaurant and order the food, it surely takes 10-15 minutes but still we restlessly wait for it;

For the lift door to open – we reach the workplace and if we are running late we first wait for the lift to come and then after getting inside it we wait to reach our desired floor; and suppose if we are stuck with someone whom we really don’t like, the wait in the lift seems to be endless. We have to wait for some time but that time seems to be passing so slow;

       For our turn in queue in supermarkets – when we are in supermarkets, no matter how long we take time to choose, analyze and then decide what all we want, for billing when we wait in queue we just wait for our turn and don’t bother about anything else and if suddenly card machine does not work we become so irritated;

      For the cash to be dispensed from ATM – we need to take out the money from ATM and we have given all options and then the sound comes that amount is getting processed; we all have our eyes stuck to the cash dispenser for the fresh notes to be dispensed;

        For the online transaction to be successfully placed – you selected an item to purchase, gave your details and then finally paid the money and then you are asked to wait and not do anything and that is when you wait eagerly so that the transaction completes successfully and your order is placed;

    For the bus at the bus stop – for people like me who rely on public transport, we can see from a distance that it is not the desired bus but still in some hope we keep staring the road in wait for the bus that will take us to our destination;

          For status updates from your loved ones – applicable for teenagers especially, when you wait for any status update from your loved one and keep checking the social networking sites;

       For the number of likes and comments – for all the facebook freaks, who after any update be it upload of any photo or any other status, keep checking their facebook to see the number of likes and comments;


Of course all this is what I feel, would request all readers out there to add any points further which you feel that you have been desperately waiting for….
