Office Ringtone Policy
In an office where everyone has mobile phones ringing regularly, it is all too easy to descend into a barbarous cacophony where musical genres clash, and trills compete with chiming. It should be possible to arrange for each worker to have a different but complementary ringtone, based on their occupation, position and seniority.
Certain departments could have an artist allocated, e.g. marketing could have ABBA, with the manager getting their most memorable melody, perhaps "Dancing Queen", and underlings getting the more obscure tracks like "S.O.S." or "Fernando". Accounts could get Travis ("Sing" for the boss, "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?" for the teaboy), and the receptionist could have something loud and brash like Geri Halliwell.
What happened to the good old days when the mobile phones simply made a fog-horn sound or a gong? Things were so simple then.
