    Re: hang on~~

    hang on (WAIT) phrasal verb INFORMAL
    to wait for a short time:
    Sally's on the other phone - would you like to hang on?
    Do you need the toilet right now or can you hang on for a while?
    Hang on a minute - I'll be with you in a moment!


    then
    used to show the beginning or end of a conversation, statement, etc.: Right then, where do you want the table to go? ĎI really have to go.í ĎOK. Bye, then.í OK then, I think weíve just about covered everything on the agenda.
