My MIL's ringtone sounds like a cheesy porno soundtrack.

It leaves us all cringing, especially as she can't hear it most of the time so we have to listen for ages before she firstly hears the phone, then locates it in her handbag.

DH and I look across the room with a despairing look, trying to control the bile as it rises.

On our first attempt to raise the issue, I bailed.

DH, 'Mum, I think you need to change your ringtone'
MIL, 'Why?'
Me, 'Yes, DH, why?' grin
MIL, 'Its the ringtone it came with'
DH, 'er, um, i don't think you can hear it very well' <throwing evils at me>
MIL, 'yes i can'.

Help MN, wisdom required.

My advice is to stop watching cheesy porno's grin.

Could you describe what cheesy porno music sounds like?

what exactly is the tune then??

I totally know the one you mean! It has thrusting and "oooh" noises. Samsung?

Can you change it when she's left it out of her bag and blame a small child?

i think you should your change your ringtone OP, the next door neighbour thinks its far too chavvy for the area

i know exactly the one you mean! my aunt has it and every time her phone goes i cringe. My other aunt and I commented that it's saucy but she didn't get it - just laughed us off (she really isn't the 'type' to have saucy ring tones - she honestly can't hear what we do).

i can't help but moan and groan along to it.

i'll see if i can see what phone it is. it would be good to link to it, so you can see what we're talking about.

What is this saucy, cheesy (sounds edible) ring tone of which you speak? Is it The Stripper/Hey Big Spender?

thatlldopigthatlldo Sun 30-Sep-12 13:35:49

needaweek, i doubt it grin

grin I have a tune on mine which sounds a bit cheesy porno... I use it as my alarm to remind me to take my pill!

My MIL has this splendid ringtone - and has no idea why we find it so funny. Green Wing wouldn't really be her sort of thing, you see - she'd sit through it with folded arms, stony-faced; tutting at the filth.

I NEED to hear cheesy porno phone, thatlldo - find it with all speed.

It really could be worse, DM has Kevin Lyttle - Turn me on as hers. When it rings she sings along to it (girl caress my body) and does a kind of shimmy to it while she tries to find it. Now that is cringeworthy!

You could get in doggy style position and make noises in tune with it so she gets what you mean.

Is it this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxajNjpyWkE

That is not work safe, or children safe, or MIL safe BTW, click at your own risk

I was sitting in the GUM clinic once, when I had a sex life. Ah, happy days.

They had "You sexy thing" playing in the background.

WEIRD confused

catstail Sun 30-Sep-12 20:07:00

am dying to hear the ringtone please!!!

thatlldopigthatlldo Sun 30-Sep-12 20:55:52

the phone is in her handbag, i can't see what kind of phone it is!

i once led a rehab session in the gym for elderly folks with various ailments.

robbie williams pipes up on the radio singing, 'i hope i'm old before i die'.

well, i nearly flippin' died.

Hahahaha talc I loved Green Wing grin
My DM (who recently upgraded her old brick to a Galaxy SII under pain of death) can be furnished with all sorts of songs that she is unable to rectify. The most memorable being a particularly charming rendition of "suck on my cock" set to the tune of "jingle bell rock" which lasted through most of Christmas before she petitioned someone to change it grin
Mind you, this is the woman we convinced that 8===D was a BIIIG kiss. She sent it to loads of people before anyone plucked up the courage to tell her otherwise grin
