Miss Information is annoyed about...noise

Aside from Gilbert and Amrous making sound effects for their game and Mike listening to music without headphones ("sorry, miss, sorry"), there is only a symphony of ringing cell phones to disturb the peace and tranquility of the area publicly known as the "Quiet Study Area".

Privately, of course, Miss Information affectionately refers to it as the 7th circle of hell, but to-may-to, to-mah-to.

Miss Information thinks that phones that play music are stupid but her sister, Ms Judge has recently acquired a cell that doesn't even have the option of ringing like a phone. Obviously the planet is doomed.

Miss Information's friend Mrs Direction has a cell phone that rings the Toreador song from Bizet's opera Carmen. Mrs Direction had no clue. Miss Information believes that if cell phones must play music, then their owners should be able to indentify the song.

Oh, but Miss Information would really rather you just turn your damn phone off. It's a library for god's sake.

(And lest you get the wrong idea about Miss Information, let it be known that she only recognized the Carmen aria because it was once featured on a episode of Gilligan's Island. Oh, and her phone rings--you know, like a phone.)

My friend's phone "rings" with a Bach Toccata - the first time I heard it I said "Oh, your ring tone is Bach"; "No it's not a bark", she said "it's some old tune".
