I've never heard that phrase. It appears to be used only for computer problems: http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=wave+a...

"Can I get" isn't rude, it's just casual. In a diner or something, I would have no problem asking "can I get," especially for things like coffee refills. In a formal setting, I'd use "may I have," but when Flo the waitress is making small talk with me, I'm not going to play Miss Manners.
