There Is No Escape
I am now forced to not hate on iphone users as much, because instead of just hearing the stupid marimba and eardrum-violating ding sound from those phones, we are all now subjected to my new most-hated sound: the Samsung/Android whistle sound.
Up until a few minutes ago, I was blaming Apple (again) for coming up with yet another sound for assholes everywhere to all simultaneously check their phones on account of. This is mostly because aside from the one-off ringtone or notification, almost all of my most hated sounds come from Apple, and apparently some people who use these phones somehow act as though no one else can hear the crap coming out of their phones.
I was forced to spread my disgust evenly between all phone users this morning when I discovered the actual source of this most irritating off all sounds. It's more provocative than the random song blasting from a tiny speaker, the grossly loud old telephone ring, the ubiquitous old iphone elevator-like bong, marimba ringtone, and brain-piercing newer ding notification.
Whoever made this piece of trash and thought it was a good idea to further the cause of whistling in public and subjecting us all to this irritating turd should be forced to listen to it endlessly until they agree to remove it from every phone on earth, at their own expense. Yes, I said whistling in public sucks. If you're mostly alone or in an open area outdoors, it may be okay, but otherwise, help your fellow society members and shut the hell up. No one wants to hear you whistle, or hear your phone make noises, or hear your fucking phone whistle -- over and over.
