1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Just curious to hear peoples thoughts on this. I work at a post office & drug store and on the rare occasion the music doesn't get turned on in the morning, I find that people are more patient in line. It's the same stuff played every day so it takes it's toll on me as well.

    perhaps a mod could move this to DT. more responses/votes = good. I'd like to print it off and take it to my boss so he does away with the hellfire that is retail store music

    Consider yourself lucky.
    When I was in college,
    I worked summers at a theme park.
    I had to listen to the same song,
    over and over and over.

    It's a small world after all.
    It's a small world after all.
    I'd be willing to bet you know the tune and words.

    After a while, I didn't even hear it.

    What I don't like at drug stores, supermarkets, etc.,
    is advertising via the public address system.

    I'll be at the local Piggly-Wiggly,
    minding my own business,
    when all of a sudden I hear a sing-songy voice.
    It's urging me on,
    "Have you tried Fryes bacon?
    It's succulent and delicious.
    Why not pick up a pound.
    Try it out at your house.
    You're family will just love it."


    Hell, lady, this is the South.
    We've all tried the Frye's.
    We eat the stuff 24 hours a day.

    Maybe it depends on the music?

    Definitely. We get teenagers to seniors coming in here, and just by looking at the numbers you can figure out that a very small fraction of people actually like any one song that might be playing. The rest, I assume (and the limited poll results reflect this), just find it annoying!
