The act of putting
someone on hold for an aggravatingly and unnecessary long time. This
can be used
for punishment to people who continually call your
place of work. Common amongst tech support.
Tech 1 - Dude who's been on hold for 30 minutes?
Tech 2 (whilst surfing internet for non-work related stuff) That jackass who keeps
calling about him not being
able to reach his porn site. I've got him on Hell Hold.
Tech 1 - Makes sense.
