By all means, hang up immediately and call back repeatedly! You can bet your ass that when the person DOES get finished with the call you beeped all over, they're going to be in a mood to help you with your urgent issue. (Especially when you're the jackass who caused Bob Dole to come in on his day off last week, and you showed up 7 hours late.)
This reminds me....
People who call back immediately after you start leaving them a message. They don't know who called in order for me to know who to transfer them to, or what it might be about (which also helps me know who the call might belong to). I walk around the office asking if anyone called a so-and-so. More times than not (actually, I can't think of a "not"), the caller had left them a voicemail (stating their name and reason for calling), but the person couldn't wait long enough for the voicemail to come through before calling back and wasting my time.
