(The title's an Insider [News] joke -- you had to be there)

... I finally figured out, today, why the Godawful "Softness is a thing called Comfort" advertising jingle from a couple of decades ago kept repeating through my brain at my current contractee's location.

It's the lifts (Leftpond: elevators).

Whenever they stop at a floor, they chime out two notes that are precisely the same as the first two notes of the jingle -- and it echoes up and down the lift shaft (it sounds almost as loud on the sixth floor as it does on the first when it stops on the first).

Knowing this won't stop the bloody jungle running through my head, but now at least I know why.


Oh, and my microwave oven is still open to to having a new owner (or a good ten-minute session with a three-pound lump hammer), because it still starts with a "hmmmMMM" sound that inspires my brain to have Sam Cooke's Cupid[^] running through it for at least 20 minutes, each time.

It's not that I don't like the song, but it would be nice to give it a bloody rest!
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
