Call waiting (or catch phone in Japan), in telephony, is a feature on some telephone networks. If a calling party places a call to a called party which is otherwise engaged, and the called party has the call waiting feature enabled, the called party is able to suspend the current telephone call and switch to the new incoming call (typically, this is done by pushing the flash button), and can then negotiate with the new or the current caller an appropriate time to ring back.

Ok, well he's over exaggerating a bit, maybe spunky is just too over the top β€œlol”. On this blog, he talks about the dad's perspective of having a large family, as well as the ways dads and moms can maintain some sanity; while also embracing the fun that can be had when everyone is together.

    I am all too familiar with this feature, as I sometimes call companies and placed on “call waiting” for as long as 15 minutes. Any longer, I hang up and email the company a complaint.
