How Long Is Too Long To Be Kept On Hold?

Imagine this: You call someone you like, and after about 30 seconds the person says "Can you please hold? I've got someone else on the other line." You say sure and you're kept on hold. How long would you be kept on hold, waiting for the person to end the call with the other caller and get back at you, before you hang up?

Yeah, depends on who I am talking to and who that person put me on hold for, say he told me it is he mum, dad etc

other than that, after say 5 minutes, I'll drop the phone

if you know she just cant help to be away for that moment then stay as long as she wants you to. Not so much of a sacrifice.

Its a matter of good judgement, if you can sense she doesnt really care then just cut the phone and do something else.
