Eleven recordings of terrible hold music for your listening pleasure.Eleven recordings of terrible hold music for your listening pleasure.

Ever been stuck on the phone waiting customer service of some kind? Chances are that you've probably heard some of these musical disasters. There are some exceptions to the hold call rule. Some of the trendier companies here in NYC play classic Nintendo (8-bit and all) music whilst holding. Instant win.

Daily Grind: Adventurous

Name: Vin (aka mr fixit)
How Vin feels today: Adventurous @ 1:56:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: To fix my household plumbing problems without actually calling in a plumber. Update: fixed one problem and created another as I am a plumbing terror.

Music Stuck in Head: Siamese Cat Song / Lady and the Tramp
Mostly due to the fact that I had to watch this flick multiple times during the course of my three old's bout with the flu. Go on, have a look - it'll be stuck in your head too afterward.

Stuff to do today:

  • Debate whether or not to get flu shot despite being sick with flu-like symptoms last week
  • Previous item is understatement as entire household was sick with flu-like symptons
  • Flu shot = added protection?
  • Consult with nurse before getting said shot
  • Buy more plumbing supplies
