So you see no difference in professionalism between a tone for a text message and a sing with offensive lyrics?
your phone is meant to be on mute anyways, so honestly the "getting in trouble" act for that should be for it not mutes or off. as for the ringtone, thats a judgemental aspect. no one should be judged bases off thier ringtone, its judgmental, and you never know who someone really is in the work of field by a ringtone. the unproffessional mark should be based off the fact that it wasnt off.
I frankly don't care what someone else's phone sounds like, but if you are meeting with a manager, or worse a client, and your phone starts playing Wiggle by Jason Derulo or Pop That by Rick Ross it probably won't go well for you. Having music is at best unprofessional, and at worst you will offend a potential client and lost their business.
I disagree music is a form of expression and everyone has a choice of what they can put on their phone if it does happen to go off in the office that is just something that happens and it is your own fault so you shouldn't punish others for it
Depending on the song, they often are. If you are in an office and your phone goes off, it is better to have a normal tone than Eminem singing @ss Like That. It depends entirely on the song, but in a professional setting they don't tend to cast you in a positive light.
what the hell? why?
