    People with no concept of vocal volume control.

    This applies to both mutterers and people who talk like you’re on opposite ends of a football field.

    I’m hearing disabled and can’t hear most things but that’s cool. Let’s pick on the disabled guy.

    It’s fine with certain clothes but if I have it in a suit chest pocket or something I’m less likely to feel it.

    Counterpoint - more than 50% of phone calls nowadays are just trying to extend your car's warranty, so no need to answer every call.

    Maybe I’m just weird but I have my phone on do not disturb mode with the exception of the rare times I’m expecting a specific call.

    If the ringer is on loud and it's some obnoxious song or something I actually love that. That's a self aware person and is just leaning in and I respect it.

    I also inherently distrust anybody wearing a short-sleeve button-up shirt.

    Gives off strong mass shooter vibes.

    Short-sleeve button up in a work/professional setting - agree

    Short-sleeve button up as a semi-casual/non-work setting - all day erry day

    Big difference between a Cole Haas/Brooks Brothers type short sleeve button up and a Volcom/KUHL type short sleeve button up.

    If you've worn a KUHL shirt and don't think it's comfy and looks good, you can't be reached.

    its from a few years ago in Oregon when environmental regulations were attempted to be put in place causing all the republicans in the Oregon senate to walk out and hide around the state so they couldn’t hold a vote. It has a very strong correlation with MAGA clothing and flags.

    I have an online one: verified twitter accounts who tag their spouse in their twitter bio.

    I’m not sure how this started as a thing but it’s frequent enough. It’s not like when I decide to follow a random sports reporter that I’m looking for the package follow deal that includes their VP of Corporate Development at random company spouse.

    I try the muted phone thing sometimes but then I just miss calls/texts so I can't just keep it muted all the time.

    With that said I keep it muted or off where appropriate like restaurants/church/movies/wherever it's common sense... like the other day I was on a nature trail walk trying to enjoy the sounds of the birds and such and this woman has speakerphone on talking to family or whatever very loudly. Obnoxious as hell.

    When I was in 8th or 9th grade my ringtone was Disturbed - Down with the Sickness. It would just erupt with the "AH WAAHAHAHA," it was so fucking obnoxious. I was probably heavily judged.
