>You can understand the PAs in supermarkets?
The ones in both of our local supermarkets are pretty decent, actually. The Hannaford's one is infuriating, not only because of the occasional intercom announcements but also because there are periodic canned ads that break into the music at random, but the sound quality is OK. Overall I prefer the one at the IGA, because a) they don't break into it with stupid ads or calls to the deli and b) it's set on some kind of perpetual oldies loop, and there's something weirdly satisfying about hearing Chuck Berry or Eric Burdon & the Animals in a 21st-century supermarket.
