Well, yeah, but you can tell them that you're in the process of interviewing elsewhere. Rather than saying it's that you're waiting on someone else's interview, why not say that you're the one who's interviewing on Wednesday? It's not much of a lie, I mean, it's not like you're keeping them on tenterhooks for a month, we're only talking about a day or two, and they certainly won't be checking.
It would have to be a pretty damned clueless employer to not realize that a candidate is interviewing at other places, and may be weighing other offers.
