You know how nowadays when you phone a company to conduct some sort of business they put you on hold? And sometimes the hold has music lulling you further into Corporate-Loving Selloustville? And occasionally that music (a.k.a, ‘Songs In The Key Of Pawn Your Soul For Instant Gratification’) is interrupted to give you the tritely-delivered little segments known as ‘Helpful Information And Announcements’?

And how they slip this one into the rotation:

“Your call may be monitored or recorded for training purposes”


I ask all this because that little ‘monitored/recorded’ announcement always makes me wonder how many times I have been monitored/recorded.

But even more, it makes me wonder how many times I have been used for training purposes.
