Ew. I hang up and call later, hoping for a less busy time, after about twenty minutes.

Ugh, one day I waited like 45 with the IRS just to get disconnected right before they picked up.

Phoebe has stayed up all night to talk to her phone company's customer service department, after the recording says that she's the next caller in line.

Never very long but I was reminded of when PHoebe was waiting for hours hehe

One time, it was like an hour.  I just put my work phone on speaker and just continued on with work. I actually jumped when someone finally came on the line.   The worst is waiting and then someone finally picks up and 'accidentally" disconnects you.  OMG - enraging!

The only time I've sat around and waited on hold for more than 15 minutes is when I was on the line with the IRS (don't get much of a choice with them, lol). For anyone else? I'll try live chat or email before  I hold for that long.
