A minute, a moment or a sec

Do you have a minute?

It will only take a sec.

I’ll be back in a moment

Do you say any of those sayings?

Of course you do, everyone does but we all know nothing takes that short a period of time.

So when someone stops you by saying do you have a minute, do you inwardly roll your eyes and think I don’t have time to talk to you then take a breath smile and say of course I do.

How do you feel when someone says to you I’ll be back in a moment and you are left waiting for 15-30 minutes, getting mader by the minute because how bloody long is a moment.
