Britney Spears tops ‘most irritating’ poll

Shop workers are not impressed

Britney Spears has topped a poll of the most irritating singers for shop workers to listen to whilst at work.

In a chart compiled by Retailchoice, 1,400 staff also named Usher and Kylie Minogue as annoying artists.

A third of the respondents said that they were forced to listen to the same CD being played up to 20 times a week, while a half of those who took part in the poll also said that customers had complained about loud music playing in store.

The survey found that staff working in fashion and shoe shops were the most likely to be subject to enforced listening to annoying music, and that the singers branded as the ‘most annoying’ were also those whose albums were played repeatedly.
