Eh, in a dungeon if you need a short afk and you TELL us, I'm not super bothered (not in the middle of a boss, they're usually pretty quick!). Pity most people aren't as tolerant. I wanted to wait for ONE minute to have all my CDs up before I pulled Durznomo the other day, and one of the DPS was jumping up and down like he was going to pee his pants if I didn't pull the boss RIGHT NOW. I'm sorry, should I have died on the trash instead of using cooldowns, since we had no CC?

That's a bad DPS. Unless the tank is regularly taking 5 minutes between each pull so it seems like they are either unfamiliar or unsure of what to do, I give them the benefit of the doubt and go along with their pace.Mainly because that's what I want others to do for me when I'm tanking. That said, if the above does happen, I'll usually ask in Party or a Whisper if everything's ok. They usually respond with a valid reason, and it's another example of why open communication is key.

Try playing a druid tank. I regularly have to wait for a few seconds for my Enrage if I had to shift out for any reason (rezzing, Thorns, CC, etc) and DPS hate it. I stand there for a heartbeat and then see "Go?" or worse, "Gogo". It usually takes more time to type "Waiting on Enrage" than it does to just wait. Sigh.

I know, it's like dps don't think tanks have cds that might be useful. I did say it in party chat but most dungeon groups don't look at chat.
