Question Waiting.....

I hate having to wait.... especially for really good things and really bad things!

I have applied to go to Olds College this September. I gave them all the required information (High School Transcrips, Taking all of the required classes, required 80 hours of voluntered work experience).

They said they will be excepting applications until March 1st, after that they will be reviewing them and partially accepting them.

After they review the applications they ask you to take a riding test and practicle test. I'm just waiting to get my letter of whether or not I get the chance to do the tests.

Anyone else hate waiting? What was the longest and hardest thing to wait for?

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I hate waiting for a table at a restaurant when I'm HUNGRY! If I wasn't hungry I wouldn't be there. Then I have to decide what I want & then wait some more for the food-did I mention I was hungry?

Oh I hate that too! It's even worse when the are "busy" and there are only you and two other tables.... and it still takes forever for the waiter to get to your table...

They just said after March 1st, the test dates are March 30th, April 5th (the one I hopefully will be going to) and April 10th.
So not too long.

I hate going to job interviews and waiting for them to make their decision. Too bad quite a lot of companies have gotten very rude and unless you're the successful candidate, don't get back to you at all. So rude when you've made the effort to go to the interview...

I also hate waiting for exam results. I took a TABS test to get into Tafe in December and they didn't give me my results until the end of January. So annoying, it was only like three pages long!

And of course food. I get ****ty if I go through the drive-thru and get made to park and wait LOL

I hate waiting for the front line supervisor at work. I'm a ****ing cashier ya know. I do keep the whole store running. And I'd you don't come fix what's wrong or give me what ever over ride I need the lines are going to get long and god forbid you ever get on register to help. I know how to fix most of my problems on my own but some things like tax exempt mode have to be done by a FLS I have worked there long enough to know that your just trying to ignore all the cashiers. Note: it is only some FL S's not all.
