Today was the first time that I was on hold and actually wanted to stay on hold.
I know that this sounds strange, but hear me out. The call I was on was handled by UberConference. I’ve found out that UberConference’s co-founder Alex Cornell, decided to write and record his own song as a stand-in for the generic muzak that plagues almost all automated telephone systems.
The lyrics are downright clever:
Well, I’ve been sitting here all day
I’ve been sitting in this waiting room
And I’ve been waiting on my friends
Yes, waiting on this conference call - all alone
And I’m on hold, well yes, I’m on hold
I hope it’s not all day
“I’m on Hold”, Alex Cornell
I’ll have to admit, I was almost disappointed when I was connected to my call. Almost.
