    wait a bit/wait for a while

    Hi everyone,

    1. Wait a minute!
    2. Wait a bit!
    3. Wait for a while!
    4. Wait for a day or two.

    My question is:
    Can I use "for" after "wait" in examples 1 and 2 and is it possible to omit "for" in examples 3 and 4?

    Thank you.

    Hello.

    Can we omit "for" in "wait for me"?

    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
