Please Wait For Every Trait!

Please wait comes due a time or two. The cat is seeing it right now as a slow ass site loads some how. That set me off for today and so we'll have our please wait say.

Please wait...
A fine trait.
They are nice,
No screw you or lice.

Phones and sites,
Have it in lights.
Need help or a PIN.
Please wait gets the win.

But it gets very thin,
When for everything it's given a spin.
Could cause strife,
If please wait was for all of life.

A bomb is about to go boom.
The whole city will be covered in a mushroom.
Can disarm with a few seconds to go.
Please wait...boom, a crater below.

A heart transplant is taking place.
Everything is done at a steady pace.
Whoops, the various thingys stop.
Please wait....damn, you joined the dead crop.

You are about to be shot dead.
Someone wants to shoot you in the head.
The gun trigger is pulled,
Please wait....you run away not lead fulled.

You go to a bank machine.
Those buttons sure aren't clean,
But you use it to get your dough.
Please wait....the line up continues to grow.

You go to a new job.
You beat out poor Bob.
You get to the door ready to work.
Please wait...eventually we'll need a new clerk.

You wait for a rhyme.
The cat's daily chime.
It doesn't show up.
Please wait....stuck with a hiccup.

Please wait....I'm soon done.
Please wait....look there's sun.
Please wait....a new rhyme will be spun.
Please wait....at least I'm polite to everyone.

Any more where please wait would suck? I'm sure there are many where please wait would pass the buck. Please wait sure can't be used for all. Then things would really stall. Yeah, I know fulled is a bad grammar pass. But please wait while I decide if it bothers my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  2. Please Wait For Every Trait!
    So you care to walk straight
    Just a while
    To make a pie
    And enough time to tempt fate

  3. It's as bad as hurry up and wait. The phone call is the worst. Please wait while we transfer and drop your call...

  5. "Wait's" a word that puppy knows
    She stands and does a puppy pose
    She'd rather bolt right through a door
    And knock down people by the score

  6. I remember the good old days when doing things was slower
    but now we expect it to happen all too soon
    we want to get things done now
    and then go back to bed by noon

  16. You've hit on one of the things that makes me craziest about modern life. "Please wait" means you are wasting my valuable time, and I'm really tired of it! btw, the cat's daily chime is never a no show. That is amazing and appreciated. Have a good day, my rhyming friend!

  21. Please wait is what I often hear
    I deal with banks and others I fear.
    the worst is when I must press 1, then 2, then 5
    only to be hung up-yup they gives us this jive.
    Or "this call can not be completed."
    The next thing I find is I am deleted.

  23. Wait? You've got to be kidding! Tempus fidgets or fugits. I wait long enough on phone trees that want me press 1 for English or 0 to speak to a representative who is someone in the world I can't pronounce. No thanks. No wait. No more.

  25. The "please wait" scenario that always gets me is on the telephone. The recording you get while you're waiting on hold keeps saying how "important your call is to us" and then you wait, wait, wait some more.

  26. "Please wait. You're put on hold."
    "Enjoy the music," we are told.
    "Your call is very important to us,
    so stay on line for an hour,
    and don't make a fuss."

  30. The doctor says your appointment is at ten.
    At eleven you ask the receptionist when.
    At noontime you've fallen asleep.
    But your appointment you did keep.

  31. I used to have a doctor that was incredibly good at making us wait. I remember I had an appointment at like 11:00am. Sitting in the waiting room for an hour, at noon I saw him leave to go to lunch. WTF?! I think I was in that office for a total of 4 hours that day for a simple visit. Dropped that guy like a hot potato after that!
