One of my biggest pet peeves is the emotional flavoring that the Fox operator uses when she says the words, “…while your call is transferred.” I don’t know who Fox hired or who coached her, but listen to the schpiel and then pay close attention to how she gives an extra ladelling of maternal sweetness to the last four words. To me, it’s insincere and even a tiny bit odious. She sounds like Louise Fletcher playing Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Tell me if you don’t agree.
