>How do you deal with these situations?

Exactly as you describe you should ;-) But that wasn't your example.

I have been in situations where you can't see / hear the belayer and you want to be lowered from the anchor. You simply hold the other (lead end of the) rope and feed/pull yourself down a bit until they get the idea or you can communicate. After all, if they can't see you, they might have thought you were stuck somewhere, or just needed some slack.

Even 'jumping onto' the rope here doesn't help things, they might just think you'd fallen. Would you be impressed if they started lowering you from the last bolt on the 3rd Pitch of world party, thinking you were at the anchors and ready to come down?
