On the way into the ED at where I work, there’s a player piano in the lobby. It’s nice, adds a bit of ambiance.
That said, the other week it apparently stopped working. These things happen. What struck me as interesting was the sign that was put up.
Piano will remain silent, until necessary repairs are made.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
It was that last bit that struck me: Sorry for the inconvenience. I can see “sorry for the disappointment” or something similar. But now I’m genuinely curious about who is inconvenienced by this small mishap.
Again, my views reflect my own, not my employer, Albany Medical Center, and anything I say here should not be interpreted as speaking for them.
