Dear Verizon [Dec. 27th, 2007|09:07 am]
Dear folks at Verizon,

I don't know what gobsmacking pinhead of an ad rep thought that putting a ringtone in the background of your latest radio commercials was a good idea...perhaps you do. I suggest you track down said gobsmacking pinhead and...well, just forward their address to me and I will address the problem.

See, it happens to be my ringtone. And you've cleverly managed to strike on JUST the very volume of my cell phone ring when it is at the bottom of my purse, on the floor of the passenger side of the car. Or, perhaps, having fallen behind me on the floor of the backseat.

Sure, I could change my ringtone, but it will take me weeks to bond to the new tone and stop responding to the old one. In which time, YOU will be off onto a new campaign. One with distant, but approaching fire engine sirens, no doubt....

hehe... I hate that... I've and old style phone ringer as mine... and there are a few songs with similar tones... and yeah I frantically reach for my phone as I'm trying to decide if that was a real ring or just the music.

Ah, so that was YOU I saw swerving all over the road!

The sushi place where Glenn and I like to go has a ringtone exactly like the one on our home phone. I have to fight the urge to get up whenever I hear their phone ring. (Could be worse I suppose... at least I don't salivate.)

Er... Ignore the phone while driving? Turn off the radio? Play a cd?

Hey, I don't actually ANSWER it...I just get cheesed 'cause I'm missing a call, and now they're going to leave a message and now it's going to beep every 15 seconds telling me it's got a message...and I go through all of this mental anguish before I realize that it's on the radio...and I HATE wasted mental anguish.

If I'm swerving all over the road, it's because I fumbled and dropped my Pint & Dale CD and finally gave up trying to retrieve it from under the seat and decided to listen to the radio instead....

Them things is dangerous.

Once them Pint and Dale CD goes under the seat, it's best to leave 'em there.
