Default You know you've been on hold too long when.....

You start boppin' along to the music.

You know the next note that'll be played.

The suspense is just not there when that quaint little pause...between the same dodgy tune and that tune again, goes unrecognised.

If it'* a recorded promo - you actually know the next lines and begin to make up your own little games to see if you can beat the machine to it!

You actually know what the name of that irritating tune is.

You begin to talk to yourself, deciding that any other mental stimulation is not going to come along anytime soon.

If the recording contains advertisments - You really DO consider buying those 488 stake knives for the 'little lady in your life.'

It is too ironic that you posted this cuz I've been on hold for 22 minutes and caught myself bopping to the music. They say they will be right with me. HA. I have no choice but to wait. See the lengths I go for the good of my customers.

I'd say that was a good one but I don't like to lie. BTW there are a lot of women that don't like to talk on the phone! I happen to be one of them.

No, MOS is ruggedly handsome in a baseball cap sporting a fishing pole in one hand and a brewski in the other.
