Earlier today I was talking to a customer representative on the phone (this call will be monitored for quality control) and at one point was placed on hold for 9 minutes, although it seemed much longer. The music was really awful. Not just vapid but also with musical notes that made me cringe. (there is a good cringe, which can turn into a delighted appreciation and there is a bad cringe, which has little redeeming value) The whole thing was about three minutes long and on a loop.
I wanted to know what it was I was being subjected to and consulted Shazam. Shazam displayed this message:
This is not a song!
Bravo, I muttered, that’s it exactly. You understand!
