Can you help me with English please?

How long am I to put up with you, and how long are you going to keep Me waiting?

What does "put up" mean in this case?

Thank you!

    “Put up with” could be replaced with the word “tolerate.”

    In this specific instance, 

    "put up with" means "tolerate". 

    Additionally, only specific words are capitalized in the middle of a sentence (proper nouns, names of people, cities, countries, days of the week, names of months, et cetera). 

    The word "me" should remain uncapitalized.

    "me", not "Me" -------------

    To put up with someone is to tolerate them.

    "How long am I to put up with you" means "How long should I accept/tolerate your behaviour".

    it means "how long am I supposed to accommodate your actions"

    It's "put up WITH" not "put up".  It only has one meaning so I'm not sure why you keep saying "in this case". It means to tolerate.
