You are currently 64th in the call queue the pleasant yet irritating female voice told her. Josie held on and found herself humming along to Greensleeves.
52nd, 31st, 12th.
Phone clamped between shoulder and ear, she counted her rows of knitting, pleased with her progress. 3rd in the queue. She put her knitting down. Two minutes later, a real voice spoke in her ear.
‘Good morning, how can I help you today?’
Having held on for so long, Josie couldn’t remember and put the phone down. Then she did remember . . .
You are 49th in the call queue.

Thanks, guys! It was an annoying phone call (in a call queue for ages and then they cut me off, grrrr) that prompted this one.
