Ringtones and Mr. Coolpants

Friday, October 29, 2010

I was at the pharmacy waiting for my son's meds. A guy walks up to the counter and spells his name. He then gives his date of birth as 1966. He's standing there counting a wad of hundred dollar bills and his phone goes off. It's at full volume and the ring tone is "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees. He didn't try to silence it, he let it ring. I would have been mortified and muted it immediately had it been  mine, which it NEVER would have been my choice.

Ok Mr. Coolpants, you're counting hundreds, you're in your forties and nicely dressed, clearly people would think that you'd  reached some level of maturity in life. Here's a tip...having "Stayin' Alive" as your ring tone is lame. Having it play at top volume so the entire store can hear it makes you a dumbass.

LOL! On NCIS Tuesday, Tony was dressed as Tony. Was he wearing the white suit too? That would have been great. A wonderful photo op.

I know, I've lost my mind.

I guess it was my Diva side showing, dude totally didn't care. I put my head down in shame, now I guess I'll be singing it all damn day long!

It could have been even worse if he would have broken out in the lame dance moves. :O

Was he picking up his Viagra then walking out to his car that compensates for his lack of manhood? Probably still wearing platforms as well. Douche.

I prefer my classic Rolling Stones "Bitch" and could give a shit what people say.

I often wonder why people put tunes that are embarrassing on their phones. But he didn't even have the sense to be embarrassed!

Pat October 29, 2010 at 6:25 PM  

I probably would have bust out laughing.

Pat October 29, 2010 at 6:27 PM  

I would have just bust out laughing!

This is what he's thinking, "Damn straight."

Savira Gupta October 29, 2010 at 6:57 PM  

Hey we all could do with a dose of 'Staying Alive' especially in times like these!

I thought I'd blog hop tonight and say "hello". You sound like a very busy mom. How do you find time to blog? I only have 3 kids and can't find enough time to do it in...unfortunately. :(

For a while, before my dog chewed up my cell phone, I had Wagner's "March of the Valkyries" for a ring tone. But I always kept the volume on low.

I thought it was pretty classy, but I don't know if I'll be able to get it on a new phone.

The Invisible Seductress October 30, 2010 at 8:29 AM  

hee hee hee...That would have cracked me up!!

Classic NYer October 30, 2010 at 12:08 PM  

What's really with people and obnoxious ringtones anyway? Whatever happened to the days when a phone would just ring?

The Queen October 30, 2010 at 7:10 PM  

I have some mucho bad ring tones on my phone, but I'm Royalty.. so it's ok.. right???

Holly October 30, 2010 at 9:15 PM  

BAHAHA!! OH MY!! Did you stare at him with disbelief/disgust?? Maybe he'd gotten the hint. What a dork... (My kids always have to ask me if I KNOW what a dork IS??? Yeah... if you want a good laugh, look it up at this link and see #2...

Dutchess October 30, 2010 at 9:58 PM  

Stayin' Alive and hundreds huh? Would it be wrong if I said I would walked up to him and said,


thepunkrockmom October 31, 2010 at 6:13 AM  

LOL forever! I would have paid to see this guy! That is too flipping hilarious! Oh and yeah, the guy's an idiot.

brandy-son Zen master flash October 31, 2010 at 10:27 AM  

That's pretty awesome! Did he have his shirt buttoned half way down with a gold chain tangled in his chest hair?

My ring tone is the Austin Powers opening song.
