"I am waiting on her husband." Is this not also an acceptable translation?

That would not be good English I guess. I am waiting FOR my friend, I wait FOR something to happen, I wait FOR the bus to arrive...

Suppose Mary is a server in a restaurant. During the day, she waits ON patrons (she takes their order and serves their food). After work, she sits a while waiting FOR her husband to pick her up.

Please do not answer every discussion where somemone mentions "wait on". There are too many of them.
