Me & My Muse – Day 287: Lunch Shift

At noon,  I will be working a lunch shift at the pizza pit.  Why pizza pit?  It’s my nickname for the establishment where I receive hours that are not enough to live off of.

And during the duration of the shift, I will be shaking a sign, promoting the new lunch combos that we have.  What I WON’T be doing is playing the “torture device”.

For you to understand why it’s called a torture device, you would have to hear it yourself.  Little Caesars has managed to create a door bell that plays the worst jingle ever.

Whatever you do, DON’T click the play button.  You can never unhear this song.  After hearing this song numerous times, I have concluded that this is not a promotional tool.  It is a torture device.  I mean, the concept does not make any sense.  Why would you have a mariachi band sing about about pizza?  Pizza is Italian!  And the music sounds more Cuban than Mexican, making the band look even more confusing.

Having that said, I will be shaking the sign outside.  But I won’t be playing that infernal 15-second jingle over and over and over and over and over and over again!


Ghost Muse:  It’s over….


Ghost Muse:  I heard the song….

You did?  There’s only one way to undo this.  You can try unhearing it.

Ghost Muse:  Okay.  I’ll let you know if I unhear it.  Four slices of Deep Deep dish and a soda….NO!  GET IT OUT!


So, did you click the play button?  You are wise if you didn’t.  That song is horrible, but has successfully hypnotized many to try a $5 lunch combo, which is a pretty good deal when you think about it.

Today’s high is going to be 71 degrees and the silver lining is having an earlier shift today.

To those of you who hate annoying TV jingles, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Just how bad can that jingle selling peasant food be?  No!  That wretched song!  I must rid my mind of it now!  Servants, play music for me now!
