/24 route propagation, how long is reasonable?

Quick question for the group..

How long should I be patient to wait for some /24s to become fully routable 

None of the addresses are mine, they came from the upstream (only one provider)

They are all part of the upstreams IP space, and I had assumed that they 
would have kept them as part of a larger block and just blackholed into 
their network..  Instead it seems that route filters had to be propagated 
WW before the traffic would leave a given AS..

I can reach the nets now (after the first day) from most of the ASs out 
there, as seen from traceroute.org... But, as my luck would have it, the 
two nets that I connect from can't get there (die at the handoff to the 
next AS).  I have confirmed this from other people on a few other ASs as well.

It has been two days now..  I don't want to be one of those PITA customers 
you guys get tired of, but I have work to get done..  How long should I sit 
on my hands?

Note: I would post the /24s, but I don't want to call negative attention to 
a SP that might be doing his/her job just fine and I just have unrealistic 

Thanks in advance!
