Do You Mind If I Put You On Hold?

short attention span cartoon

This cartoon came to me on a phone call with a decidedly disinterested customer service rep.

The monotone monosyllabicist monopolized my time for the good part of an hour, much of which I was on hold for while he “consulted with his manager.”


More likely, I think, was some Facebook browsing, chatting with co-workers, a coffee refill and maybe a smoke break.

When I did get an answer it wasn’t helpful. But I did get a good cartoon out of it.
