I had cause today to phone an insurance company and when I got through heard the following message:
Your call is important to us and has been placed in a priority queue.
Priority queue? Priority queue? Wha? Wha?
So now, apparently, there’s (at least) two kinds of queues that you can get on people’s switchboards? Since I just dialed in using a number from the phone book it got me to wondering just how insignificant you’d have to be to get the normal ‘non-priority’ queue.
I waited and waited on the priority queue. But at least I eventually got through. Some schmuck is still hanging on…
