The Mosquito Ring Tone...

I find myself QUITE annoyed today... and many of you may join along with me once I fill you in-

Today, my husband was reading Business Week at the breakfast table when he asked me to type www.mosquitoringtone.com into the browser. I did just that only to find that it was a ring tone that "Old People" can't hear. Apparently someone thought it brilliant to create a 1700mhz tone that adults can't hear so children can have it for a ring tone. It allows teens to know they have an incoming call and or a text message in school without the teacher being aware.

Here's my problem... when I pulled it up online and played it... EVERYONE, including K-girl, can hear it BUT I CAN'T. I should be grateful right? I should be happy because I won't be annoyed when I am in the mall and teens are texting away and or answering their phones when I didn't even know they were ringing...

BUT there is a part of me that is sad because...

I'M TOO OLD TO HEAR THE DARN THING.

Here's the link to the site that has the high pitch ring tone. I can't figure out how to get the tone directly on my blog...


Enjoy. Or don't. Either way... I've vented.
