There was a time when you would make a call and if the person that you were calling was on the phone – you’d get the busy signal. The busy signal helped us. The busy signal – signified that someone was busy. The busy signal had an impact of us. The busy signal was awesome.
We don’t have the busy signal any more – well, we don’t hear it much any more. It just goes to voicemail. We don’t hear the sound. When someone doesn’t answer, we get all frustrated that they didn’t answer – even if they’re busy. Know why? Because we don’t have the sound of the busy signal letting us know that it’s all good – that we should just keep it chill.
You’ve never thought about the busy signal being a good thing huh? You never thought about the busy signal being a help to you. What if we had a sound – a signal – that just made you feel at ease? What if there was a signal that helps you? What if all it took to chill you out was a busy signal? I’d take that.
