Is this sentence right?

Let whoever wants to wait wait.

I want to say, let those people who want to wait for something wait, and let me go.

  • It is okay but sounds very old-fashioned. We might expect this in Shakespeare's time! – chasly - supports Monica Nov 21 at 21:02
  • Some people would insert a comma between the waits, to make it a hair less confusing. – Hot Licks Nov 21 at 21:21

I think it's okay, but it sounds a bit clumsy in my opinion.

A little change, however, will do wonders.

Whoever wants to wait can wait.

Let and can do the same job, but bringing 'can' in between those two identical words makes it a smooth read, I think.
