I think I’d rather listen to Barney’s “I Love You” song while on hold. Hell, I’d be okay with Joe Jonas telling me he’s burnin’ up for me, baby.
Hold music ranks right up there with elevator music as far as things-that-could-potentially-drive-you-to-insanity go. But at least elevator music is melodic. Hold music is just a random grouping of piano keys and violins and burps – pretty classy up until the burps – keeping you from the person you’re trying to reach. Put me through!
