Penny: "There are places where nasty music, designed to move customers out of their seats, is company policy."
??? In my most cynical dreams, I can't imagine that. Why not just serve nasty food to move customers out of their seats? In other words, I can understand loud, fast rock music as an incentive to eat and move fast, a la a red-and-orange color scheme, but "nasty" music? Can you explain/give examples?
