I'm sitting at the bus stop wishing that I had finished that darn adolescent psychology midterm five minutes earlier.

You see, after 6:00, the busses stop running every 12 minutes and start running every 48. It's currently 6:18 and the next bus won't get here for another 30 minutes or so. So I must sit and wait.

I just did a little research and Google Answers says that the average person spends 45-62 minutes a day waiting. Which means by the time we're 70 years old, we'll have spent about 3 years of our lives waiting in line, waiting while we fill a gas tank, waiting on an elevator, waiting for a file to download... and the list goes on and on. That's 4% of our lives. Waiting.
