…because I still can't.
Back in June, before everyone went on their summer breaks, I posted about this annoyingly pitched ring tone that had educators sounding alarms (sorry, I couldn't resist). Paul Vitello from The New York Times ran an article, (a day later I might add), about how this sound (that I still cannot hear) interrupted one teacher's class.
Here's a blurb from his article…
"Whose cell phone is that?" Miss Musorofiti demanded, demonstrating that at 28, her ears had not lost their sensitivity to strangely annoying, high-pitched, though virtually inaudible tones.
"You can hear that?" one of them asked.
"Adults are not supposed to be able to hear that," said another, according to the teacher's account.
She had indeed heard that, Miss Musorofiti said, adding, "Now turn it off."
Readers, please tell the truth and let me know if you can hear this invisible sound. Or, if you've had any problems with this in your school.
