The store managers have no control of what gets played, sadly.
It annoys them just as much as you at times.
Kinda makes you wonder: if he's
not in charge, who the fuck is
I'll bet if enough people complained, he'd call the DM...and be told to call Regional.
And I bet
if people continued to complain, some
of them even showing a bit of true "displeasure," he would contact corporate, only to be told their hands are tied. No one knows who ordered the music but it must stay as it is until it's time to switch to the Christmas tapes.
And I betttttttt
if people in the store jumped over the counter, grabbed him by the scruff of his shit-neck and threatened to put his head through the ciggarette displa...or even better
just managed to eek out in a barely restrained growl, the words "Off, NOW" Mister manager's authority
would suddenly multiply exponentially and his finger would find the On/Off switch in a hurry.
