stop it. just. just. stop it. enough! it’s a phone. phones do not sing, they ring. let them ring!
i don’t care if you want to be sophisticated with a few tinny lines of beethoven, or prove your coolness with the latest downloaded snippet of tool or radiohead, or be quirky with the theme from the muppets. it’s bad enough out in public, but then you have the officemates with their phones constantly bursting into the same song. over. and over. stop it.
my phone is cool. it plays four note chords and actually sounds rather pretty. but do i annoy you constantly with some stupid song that then gets stuck in your head, just a few notes on repeat? no! i do not. my phone can do anything your phone can do. my phone could announce callers by name in my voice, but that’s just silly. sometimes, the reason ‘because it can’ is not good enough.
well, i take that back. my phone does not download ringtones. i did not want it to, i wanted it to be a functional phone. to do phone things. like ring. phones ring. they should not sing. make them stop.
consider yourselves warned. and if that’s not enough, let me tell you, your phone will make a damned uncomfortable suppository.
