Yes, it is a strange thing we humans do. Ever seen a queue of dogs waiting to use a lamp post? Or, a parliment of Blackbirds standing around waiting for a bit of nosh. I know I have not, is it just us humans?

Thought I would ask.

"Your right Arm, it is just you that waits. Or is it because you are a wanker and no one likes you on here?"

"Well, I do admit to a bit of onanism in the past, but I hardly think that warrents me being labeled a wanker".

"So..........."

Crows wait. Very patient are crows.

Dogs wait. At least they do if it's my turn to feed them.

When humans wait, it's on a table...

If 42 is the answer, the question is if 24 looks in the mirror, who does she see?

Debbie is right about crows.

Also, I witnessed a crow patiently unwrapping a discarded McDonalds burger in my street. Rather than grab the wrapper with it's crafty beak and lift off a couple of feet in the air thus allowing the burger to drop from the wrapper and onto the pavement, it took a corner of the wrapper in it's beak, pulled it back while carefully standing on the other side of the burger and then repeated the action until the burger was visible to it's beady little eyes and undamaged.

It then promptly scoffed the burger and crapped on my neighbours car as it flew off. True story.

Waiting......hmmmm.

What annoys me greatly is people who push in while queueing. It seems to happen a lot at bus stops. I'm waiting in the queue, normally slightly agitated 'cos the bus is late, and when the bus arrives you almost get trampled to death by the hoardes of incredibly rude and impatient people who seem to think they have the right to shove their way onto the bus in front of others who have waited patiently in front of them. I've seen frail old women virtually pushed aside by these people, who obviously think they are vastly more important and have incredible things to do in their lives.

Why do they do it? The bus is still going to take the same amount of time to get to their destination. Is it so they can ensure they get a seat all to themselves so they can then bellow into their bloody mobile phones while gesticulating without someone next to them getting in the way? Or are they just rude selfish people with no manners?

I pride myself on my manners. I wish others would.

Sometimes waiting shows good manners.

My apologies. This appears to have turned into a bit of a rant. I'd better have a lie down.

I waited before replying to this thread.
I feel the conversation Arm had with himself will go down in history as one of the best EVER in the spoof forums history.
I'm glad I did my bit.

I waited for Castle to air tonight, but then realized that the debates were on instead. I'll be waiting another week.

Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

The president mentioned you. Something about class sizes. Despite making notes (or possibly because of) I missed how that was relevant to foreign policy.

Yeah....they touched briefly on education. I had to leave the room then, but all I heard was Romney said that he loved teachers. Then I thought, "Great...he loved Big Bird, too."

Education should be a part of foreign policy though according to this article, which makes sense:
Why Education Should be Part of Foreign Policy Debate

But anyway, I'll have to wait until tomorrow to watch all the pundits talk about the debate and what they said about education because I had to take my dog to have a crap. I waited then too.

Seems like I wait for a lot of crap!

"Can you hear voices Arm"?

"No, I'm just waiting"

"For what"?

"The singing to stop"

"Its that lot from the Spoof"

"Well thats ruined my moment of madness"

"Bastards, Lets go down the cafe"
