I was in high school the first time I heard “on” used like that and, to my Upper Midwest ears, it still sounds strange. I wait FOR someone, a waitress waits ON someone.

I agree that this is not common usage in Minnesota, but I think that something like Sugar's example of "waiting on the bus to come" it's still far more common around here than to hear someone talk about being "on the front row" or "waiting on line". Those just sound bizarre to me. (Sorry for the threadjack.)

Waiting "online" is okay though.

"In hospital" instead of "in the hospital" is something English people say (or Canadians trying to sound sophisticated and falsely equating sounding English with sounding sophisticated).

Thanks, Sugar M. That sounds like an excellent information program to GOTV. I hope that today volunteers are knocking on many doors. This election really matters.

Just voted in my little precinct and I was #273. That is huge. We've had presidential elections with fewer votes than that and the after work crowd hasn't even hit yet.

I've used "waiting for" and "waiting on". To me, the latter has more of a sense of "I'm stuck here waiting" rather than "it will be here any minute". Using "on" seems more of a complaint. What that has got to do with the "on the front row" I haven't a clue. Unless it means "on hand if they need some help."

Espy is MUCH stronger than I expected him to be even 6 months ago. He also has the sign wavers out in force today and I haven't seen a single one for CH-S. She has managed to piss off a bunch of people who would normally be her supporters but it's hard to tell if they will hold their nose and vote for her or just stay home. Not a word coming from the staunch McDumbass supporters so no real way to know what path they will take. My guess is they're home with a 12 pack drowning their sorrows.

Unfortunately, either one of them will make history (first woman or first black) so that won't sway anyone.

Maybe it is a Southern thing. Juanita Jean is in TX and she said this today.
“I love wikileaks,” hollers Trump, meaning that Manafort doesn’t have to risk meeting with Assange because Trump will give them orders while speaking in front of a rally with teevee cameras recording it. It was more brazen than a hussy on the front row of church wearing feathers and sequins and little else.
