    Post Re: ''for hours''

    None of the phrases are correct. It should be one of the following:

    I have been waiting for hours for you to come...

    I have waited for hours for you to come...


    But to avoid using the word "for" twice, I would use something like that:

    I have spent many hours waiting for you to come...
