Annoying Thing About Cancer #24

The hold music.  When one has cancer one needs to schedule a lot of things – doctor’s appointments, mainly, but also tests, procedures, referral recommendations… the list goes on and on.  And since one must call to schedule most of these things, one is often placed on hold.  As a general rule, so far, the hold music sucks.  I have heard Musak versions of Phil Collins’ “One More Night,” “We’ve Only Just Begun” by the Carpenters, and “Send in the Clowns.”  You’d think a Musak version of the latter would be redundant, but apparently not.
