I'm curious what people think is a good length of time to wait. I sat in a cafe for an hour waiting on a forum friend (whom I'd never met) who never showed up. Turned out said person sent me an e-mail cancel too late for me to get it before I left for the meet-up. I waited an hour, but after I arrived home and read the message, I was pretty peeved at the lack of time organization skills....

No, it wasn't anybody from this forum. :)

I'm very impatient. I'd wait about 30 minutes.

If the food looked good, I might eat and hang around a little longer.

Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train

You can't go back for what you've missed

So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

You only get one trip

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

I'm pretty impatient. After 10 mins tops, I'd start calling. If I don't have the number, I am gone after 20-30 mins, depending on who I am waiting for.

If it is a friend who is always late, I'll probably late too..lol
