I have been on hold for orange now for nearly 40 minutes after I was told the wait was 7 mnutes. Whilst I am waiting I am using my handsfree as a make shift radio whilst I surf.

I don't know if there is any subtle undertones to the music choice or whether the guy that chose them was one of the thousand having his job outsourced to India, but did anyone else notice that the tunes are conveying some wonderful messages:

1. After you wait about 30 minutes Charlotte Church comes on singing "Bad Timing"
2. There is another song which has the following chorus: "Find yourself another place to Roam!
3. Finally there is another song, where the singer laments several times: "Where did it all go wrong?"

I will update as some new tunes come on.

Anyone care to suggest some alternatives to Orange.


I am thinking "Walk away"- the Verve
"I hate you so much right now"- Kelis
or even "they don't care about us" Michael Jackson

Having to listen to James Blunt for any length of time makes me want to lay down and stop breathing. Luckily my call was answered fairly quickly.
