We hope you are having a great day, and that we can be a part of it. If you would like to leave us feedback at the end of the call, we would greatly appreciate you taking a survey about whether or not we met your needs today. Before you begin though, it is important to know that our moms are conducting the survey, so please do not upset them.

You are 79th in our queue, and estimated hold time is between one and two hours.

Also, in case you didn’t know, queue is just another word for line. 

Please understand before opting in to a callback that we cannot promise that the call won’t come at the absolute least opportune time. Consider avoiding any significant bathroom trips or activities that could tie up your phone, your mental bandwidth, or your ability to chat.
