For me tickler is for when I know the day something should happen or when I know when I should do something. Waiting for is for things that are more open ended.

If I tickle it and they get back to me sooner than I expected then I have find where I put the tickler notice and that's a PITA. if they are later than I tickle it for then I have to move the item forward day by day. I hate that and will tend to even avoid looking at my tickler when I have a lot of things that are oh not today maybe tomorrow items in it.
