The concept of making every effort to arrive at a location ahead of the appointed time, with the expectation of having to wait upon arrival. The purpose behind the concept is that it builds a large amount of time into one's schedule, therefore accounting for unexpected occurrences.
When we went to the airport for our vacation, we followed the "hurry up and wait" philosophy, arriving several hours prior to our flight.

A phrase commonly found in the military. This phrase depicts the day-to-day grind of soldiers where they have to "hurry up" to point B only to have to wait hours for the event to occur. This phrase also applies to anything that requires you to be on time but does not start for a good while.
Example A: While at the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS), we were told to arrive on time at 6 AM but in processing did not start until 9 AM. We practiced the "hurry up and wait" policy.

Example B: I did 80 just to get to the doctor's office on time, and he did not even show up for another hour. It was another case of hurry up and wait.

The team motto used by the University of Bridgeport baseball team. Everytime we go to florida for our pre-season we are always hurried every where and then have to wait for a long period of time. At the Orlando Airport we were hurried to the curbside pick where we proceded to wait for 2 hours for the vans to pick us up. We are hussled through batting practice and infield-outfield just to wait 45 mins for the game to start. Also our coach makes has us meet down stairs 30 mins. before we actually leave for the game.
Hurry up and wait for the vans.
