Is this a play on words?
The actual saying is "biding my time", as in waiting and being patient.

I personally have heard someone use this saying. I'm just biting my time until a better job comes along.

I'm just going back and doing your other "messed up" puzzles. So now I see what you are doing - messed up/mashed up sayings. Love your puzzles, always enjoy working them out.
And yes - many people misunderstand what these sayings should be - just like when we misunderstand the words of songs. Very funny what some people sing out loud.

Thank you. You must have enjoyed all of the mondegreen puzzles here on this site. I know that I did.

Yes, I did enjoy doing the mondegreen puzzles (just couldn't think of that word! Thanks for reminding me)
