The act of hanging around the home telephone, not doing much more than waiting for a "call-back" as promissed by the recorded message you left; the computer generated "we will call you back with-in XX minutes; or even if you happen to get a "live person", who states "I'll get right back to you"! Hovering or remaining near the phone so as not to miss a call, which in most cases, NEVER HAPPENS! Usually from a GOVERNMENT AGENCY, but not limited to that. A cordless phone would be a "Hoverphone"
I spent my whole day "PHONE HOVERING" to find out if my Health Coverage is in effect.
