WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?: meaning and examples

Good morning.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter week, and that it included some contact with English. ;-)

Today's expression is: What are you waiting for?

Meaning: this expression is used in conversation to suggest that someone should start doing what you have told them to do or what you have been discussing.

Example 1:
I told you to clean up the kitchen an hour ago. What are you waiting for?

Example 2:
John: Did you finish the report for the meeting tomorrow?
Alex: No.
John: Well...what are you waiting for? Nobody's going to do it for you!
Alex: Don't worry. I'll have it done by five o'clock. It's been a busy morning.

Have a great day!
