12. Do you have a friendly co-worker sitting nearby?
You need to develop an office phone emergency signal. Something such as placing a hand to your throat, or a special wave. When someone else sees you doing that, they know they should come over and tell you that you have a meeting, or an emergency call, or whatever excuse works.

I once worked at a small paper where we used this kind of signal. When someone was catching hell on the phone, they gave the signal, and someone else would rescue them with an excuse.
