The Parable of the Hold Music

There once was a man who happened upon a traveling salesman.  Interested in what the salesperson had to offer, the man stopped to examine his wares, but after waiting for some time, the proprietor did not speak to him, or even look at him.  All he did was hum a tune which sounded vaguley familiar, but irritatingly boring.

A little put off by this, the man cleared his throat loudly to attempt to announce his presence, but the salesperson simply went about his business, all the while humming the same 2 lines of music.

Now feeling a little put off, he stood on his tip toes to get right in the face and yelled "HELLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!".

Unphased, the proprietor stood, looking out in the distance right past his one and only customer.

The moral of the story?  Answer the stupid phone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
