Script timing question

I periodically run into issues where the script timing is off and I need to force something to happen by putting in a "wait(0)" command so that my script doesn't try to do that it cannot....typically because a table hasn't been created, or formulas haven't been evaluated, etc.... 

I'm curious if anybody out there knows what specific commands DO NOT wait for completion until moving on.  Maybe it's me....but why wouldn't a script language wait for completion before executing another command?  It makes you wonder whether script timing is dependent on the PC you're running....if my dev PC is super fast...will I have issues when I give the script to others?  Or vise versa?  Or is it random?
