What do you do when they won’t change the music at work?

Earlier this year, I was in a London hotel with a lobby stuck on a time warp. I was reminded of all this with an email from Brenda. I recently asked a co-worker how often they change the loop. I am in a retail environment and am slowly losing my mind after listening to the same crap music since I started. They told me that they’d been there for about two years and it’s never changed. I remember the hell of working at a grocery store at Christmas. Thanks! To this day, Burl Ives’ “Holly Jolly Christmas” activates my PTSD from the era. Brenda
I feel her pain. I dread the Christmas season. When I asked the guy behind the desk if they ever changed the music, he just sadly shook his head. Inside the office–which was locked, naturally–was an 8-track player that fed speakers throughout the store. Have you or do you know if anyone who has either studied or given tips on how to survive this auditory hell? From what I could tell, they played the same music on two-hour loop 24/7. Yikes! Does anyone have any suggestions? In April of this year, I had to return to the workforce. From about mid-November to New Year’s Eve, the same dozen songs were played over and over and over again.
