I'd probably be a pretty boring person to listen to "on hold".

^ Same. I pretty much just breathe. Or maybe I'll hum a bit.

With me you'd get the sound of whatever YouTube video I was playing.

I have not only done that, I have transcribed the "conversation" via Microsoft Communicator to my coworkers. I could drop the call on my end, but that would be no fun. Thanks for the laugh, jackass!

Sounds like it'd be pretty boring most of the time. I don't do anything other than breathe.
Also, exactly how is someone a jackass for calling tech support?

Chica, I think the point is that the person calling gets put on hold and lets out a stream of curses that would make a sailor blush. They're not a jackass for calling, they're a jackass for acting like a brat because they have to wait in line.

Usually when I put someone on hold, it is so I can laugh hysterically, catch my breath and then return to the call, using my "professional" voice.

While I know it was wrong a friend of mine worked for a tech support place that went out of bussiness and made the mistake of telling him two weeks before they shutdown for good. So he just stopped answering the phones and cut the voicemails together so he could laugh at them. It was funny at first then kind of sad how desperate they would get by message number 3 or 4.

It's not true. :P Any hold system anymore has music when you're on hold. It IS true that I will sometimes mute people to talk to a cow-orker about the call and hear them being dumbasses, though.
When I put someone on hold when it's not for a transfer, it's so I don't HAVE to listen to them anymore because they won't STFU.
