Waiting (2): “Life On Hold”


The cheesey music pauses and a voice suggests I try The Website where I can find the Answers to manyΒ Frequently Asked Questions. Fourth in the queue didn’t sound so bad earlier.


I close my eyes and press my forehead against the wall, banging it gently in time to the music that will haunt me tonight as I try to sleep.


The repeated tune is now a comfort in the timeless limbo of Queue; the interrupting Voice is the Devil of Irrelevant Distraction.



My Holy Hold Music gives me succour as I await the prophesised coming of Customer Service.

      1. Yep, that’s what I nearly did after 30 mins on hold with phone on speaker setting – couldn’t remember which button put it back to normal! Someone actually answering the phone meant my heart jumped to my throat in surprise & my brain seized up. πŸ˜‰
