I was sitting in the socially distanced waiting room of my doctor (annual physical results: nothing appears to be falling off). 

In the next pod, a woman's phone rang, and "Eye in the Sky" by The Alan Parsons Project started playing. Specifically, the lyric 
I am the eye in the sky, looking at you

It was her ringtone, as it turned out. Slightly disturbing, because here's that section of the lyrics:
I am the eye in the sky, looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules, dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind

The obvious question here: who was assigned that ringtone? Spouse? Parent? Employer?

I really had to hold back to stop myself from asking her, because I desperately wanted to know. Discretion won, but only barely.
