Phone rings have two distinct functions:
1) To alert the bearer
2) To instruct others nearby to STFU/excuse the bearer/throw things at
Ignoring the subtle thrill some women tell me they get from
strategically places vibrating phones (which is not something I'll
decry), moving to vibrate loses the second function and my throwing arm
would miss the exercise.
ObNote: I despise phones. There are sound reasons my home and work
voicemail tells callers that I check for messages only every week to
three, and they'd do better to not leave messages but to send email.
