The Purpose of Hold Music
I am one hundred percent convinced that some Short Sale Banks make their hold music so annoying, and in such a short loop, to discourage folks from holding. I'm currently listening to brash hold sounds of the Seterus saxophone assault. If my ears could talk they would simply say, "Ouch!"
Of course, a good Short Sale Agent will hold through anything, no matter how bad it is hurting your ears. It is unlikely that I am ever going to be fortunate enough to hear Maroon 5 on hold while waiting for a Short Sale Negotiator. Why would a Short Sale Bank want to give me any joy in life? It's not like I even need to hear my favorite band. I could do with some Frank Sintra or big band stuff. Heck, bring on Dad's favorite, Johnny Cash. But enough with the harsh sounds of a super short, repetitive rhythm that makes me feel like I'm stuck in the worst music ever offered.
