Let's say you're waiting for your turn to be assisted by a cashier in a bank. People are not queuing because they are assigned a number. They are assisting client number 8, and yours is number 22. You go out to buy food, and you meet someone outside who is aware that you're supposed to be waiting in line.

- Why did you leave?​
- I will buy something. My turn is still far-off.

How would you normally express the italicized phrase?

    I would say something similar.

    - They won't get to my number any time soon.
    - They won't be calling my number any time soon.
