My parents have phones in every room, and each phone has a ringer – A LOUD ringer.
That in and of itself wouldn’t be so bad, but each phone has a different ringer. And, again, not so terrible by itself.
The clincher is, they aren’t synchronized! You couldn’t do this if you tried. When the phone rings, each phone rings separately, actually starting and ending at different times!
It’s like living inside a clock factory where the top of the hour is a real experience!
Please, don’t call.
