The Song Remains the Same

The music at work is … inoffensive. It’s shopping music, it has to be. But it can be grating when you have to listen to it over and over. And through it all there’s one song I hate. It’s not the worst one we play, but something about it sends chills down my spine from the opening words. I didn’t even know what it was called until recently, with the help of my friend.  

I mention it because I’ve gone five shifts in a row without hearing it. I’ve heard the other annoying songs, but not this one. Does this mean it’s been taken out of rotation? Is my nightmare finally over? Only time will tell. This is not to say I’m free of the thing—I still get it stuck in my head at random. But it’s something.
