Oh your on the phone and the call come in to your party. They tell you to hold on a little and you wait. How long is too long to hold on for you? I simply hand up after a minute because,I am not in the mood for it. if they call back oh well. If not the other call was important. People always call me back too. Sharon you did not hear me say hold on.... Yes I did but,yyou took too long and I hung up. Simple as that.

Phone calls to me, are "targeted." Because everyone calls me via cell phone. We in the house have also the "fixed" phone, but fortunately, it does not ring almost never.

Oh haha you hung up after a minute? Well it depends on who or what it is. I can put them on speakerphone and wait like that if I want.

Yeah, I hang up too if the other person takes too long to get back! Common sense to do so.

If it's business? 40 minutes. If it's friends? I'll tell them to just call me back if it's been more than a minute.
