My cellphone ring tone is the five-note theme from Close Encounters. Isn't that just the best choice for a ringtone? It's distinctive, easily recognized, and entirely appropriate.
And there's one extra bonus I discovered a few days ago. Waiting in line at the supermarket, and the lines were extremely long and crowded due to the pre-Christmas rush. It was a wall of bodies and carts. While I was waiting, my cellphone rang.
Normally in a crowded public place, whenever someone's cellphone rings, everyone else looks at them. When I say "looks" I really mean "glares" at the person with the cellphone. But when my cellphone rings with that distinctive, familiar five notes, everyone looks up.
By the time it occurs to them to do something else, I've already answered the phone, and then they're feeling too silly about it to keep glaring at me.
Too bad I get so few calls.
