Take a frakkin' number.

Listen. I know, you think you're important. You have places to go, people to see, things to do. Unfortunately, just because you huff and puff and drum your fingers and give me dirty looks for making you wait your turn to see my boss, I will not sudden

Listen. I know, you think you're important. You have places to go, people to see, things to do. Unfortunately, just because you huff and puff and drum your fingers and give me dirty looks for making you wait your turn to see my boss, I will not suddenly clear his schedule any faster so he can see you. See the other four people sitting next to you? Yeah, they're also giving me dirty looks and breathing heavily because they are waiting their turn to see the boss. They've been here longer, so no, I will not let you skip ahead to see him just because you think "it'll only take a minute." It never takes only a minute. The guy that's with the boss right now said it would only take five minutes, and that was 45 minutes ago.

Maybe if you decided to book an appointment instead of dropping in unnanounced and at the last minute, this wouldn't be an issue. Or if you called ahead, I could have told you that he was going to be about an hour before he could see you, so you didn't have to waste our time.

Or maybe I can shove that porno music playing cellphone of yours up your ass the next time you complain to your "bro" on the other end that "some desk lady won't let me pop my head in to his office to see if he will see real quick" and that's why you're running late for meeting him to pick up "the order."

Sit down, quit your complaining, and wait your turn. If not, you can take your huffy attitude and come back another day, after you've made an appointment.
