    Smile just so I know exactly

    Hi! Could you tell me what the underlined part means in this context below?
    I understand that the woman thinks the speaker is wasting her time.
    Am I right or is there any other meaning in it?
    Please help me! Thank you.

    "It's Daniel. I was on the quiz show (on the radio)"
    "I'm afraid you're too late, it's already started."
    "No! I know! I was on it. I got cut off!"
    "I'm sorry, sir, you're too late!"
    I realize it's a different voice to the one who normally answers.
    "Please! They need me for the knock-out! I got cut-ff!"
    The woman lets out a long sigh, just so I know exactly how much of her time I'm wasting. "Hold on line."

    Yes, and she lets out a long sigh to suggest Daniel is wasting a lot of her time.
