Explanation: Same explanation as for my previous posting of a Dartnell cartoon from 1995, the one I posted on April 21, 2023. In the good old days, telephone hold buttons were a vital power tool for executives. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that execs in those days didn’t have to pass a course called “Telephone Holding Techniques 101” before they could get their MBA Degree. Well, it’s fun to think about such things, anyway.
Explanation: This was printed in 1995, when that powerful Hold button was still being used by petty business execs to control and dominate phone conversations (as in “I’ve got an important call coming in, let me put you on hold for a minute”.)
