4. You never forget the joy that is putting an annoying customer on hold.


And maybe you still do this to your friends every so often.

"Oh, you don't know where you want to meet tonight? Oo, one second, can I put you on hold?"


6. Getting a sore throat feels like the worst thing that could possibly happen to you.

Or maybe it's a cough, but then at least you get to put someone on hold while you cough your guts up.

7. Your phone voice is perfection.

And if someone can't hear you loud and clear it is 100% their fault.

15. Desk snacking is a hard habit to break.

"Let me just put you on hold." So I can finish this packet of crisps.

16. If you have long hair, then you will be an expert at dealing with this.

19. And you will always be polite to the person on the other end of the phone.
