The Non-Silence of the Phones
Few things in life are as annoying as the ringing of someone else's cell phone. Especially if they have the same ring you do. To that complaint, I hasten to add that the addition of phone rings (or a close facsimile thereof) is taking over commercials, and even background tracks for music. Several times recently the radio has sounded so much like a phone that I've turned it off to answer only to find no one there. Just tonight a Church's Chicken commercial had us grabbing for the phone again. Everybody who makes an ad or a background track like that should be sentenced to ten years hard labor chained to a wall while phones ring in discordant tones just out of their reach.
