I’m on hold. I’ve been on hold for 20 minutes. I’m sure i spend a good proportion of my life on hold to customer support phonenumbers chasing this, ordering that – it quite possibly comes quite close to the amount of time i spend on the loo – and is about as enjoyable. but why do they just play REM over and over and over and over and over and over and over and … etc.?

surely, there is a market for short soundbites, news headlines, quick facts, stock prices, stand up comedy?

i think i’ve found my second flooglebinder (which, by the way is the search result which seems to link most often to my website from google!).

so the next time you’re on hold, and learn something from the experience, like the average rainfall in the amazon basin or how many light bulbs does it take to change a lawyer) – think of me, you’ll have just made me 2 pence.
