annoying workplace ringtones

There are two types of ring-tone. There are mobile ring-tones and then there are these annoying ring-tones. I have come across zombies who love to annoy people around them. I call them zombies, because they are insensitive just like the living-dead. They don’t tend to care about the world around them. Here are a few of these annoying ringtones, not in any specific order. They are all equally annoying.

  1. I love you baby.. umma umma umma …..
    The high frequency modulated child voice irritates as much as the ‘umma’ which is repeated until the phone is picked up.
  2. Breaking glass
    It’s a good special effects sound, but why must it be a ring-tone? Totally unpleasant on the ears and it shatters thought process in a workplace.
  3. Hysterically laughing baby
    A baby’s laugh is the most pleasant sound on earth, made by human. But everything’s got a limit. Looping a hysterically modulated laughter is more devilish than heavenly.
  4. Drained Nokia
    The basic Nokia ring tone is an ideal ringtone for a mobile. There has been many modified versions, but the dying Nokia irritates like no other.
  5. Boingggggg
    Imagine being a very serious discussion and then there is a sound from nowhere ‘Boingggg’. It makes everyone laugh, but if it happens repeatedly, its quite annoying.
  6. Machaaaaan neenga yenga irukeengaaaaaaaaaaa
    I really can’t figure out the origin of this ringtone. But its popular. The anachronic shrill screaming of a village girl in a quite office ambience is a total put-off.
  7. Vadivelu .. hello dubaiyaa...
    We all love to laugh at Vadivel jokes, but not everytime we get a call in the mobile we would like to listen to Vadivelu shouting at the top of his voice which can be heard in Dubai without telephony.
  8. Koundamani’s adrasakkai
    Goundamani, as he is, a very noisy person and any of his film monologues used as ringtone is irritating. But there is no match for this adrasakkai ring-tone.
  9. Crazy Frog
    That’s one retarded frog yapping at the top of its voice and the retards love it.
  10. Traditional Telephone ring
    If you really like a traditional phone ringing, throw that mobile and get yourself a nice wired land-line.

Tones like these are not for professional environment. May be its an attention grabber and it may make heads turn. But it also make a lots of people frown at you. A ring tone is to get your attention when the mobile rings and it’s not meant to irritate people around you.

    I have a special hate place in my heart for Tokyo Drift. And it's shockingly common! Every time I hear the ting-ting-ting-ting, I break into spots =(
