The most ironic hold music ever


It was the second time I had called the office of my father’s primary care physician this morning. And the second time I was put on hold for longer than I would have liked. But at least I got a laugh out of hearing Mick Jagger sing a song that should never, ever be heard by anyone while they are on hold: “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”

So here’s the question: Someone has to decide what music is foisted upon people as they wait on hold. And that someone in this case decided “Satisfaction” would be just the ticket. Do you think he or she was oblivious to the irony?

I find that difficult to believe.

Dad’s OK, by the way. Thanks for asking.
