"Tet tenenet tenenet tenenet"


It's funny to see how someone would start rubbing his whole body trying to locate their phone when it rings in my court. This is especially so if their phone is not on silent mode. If you happen to drop by to my courtroom, you would see posters behind most of the benches reminding the public to switch off their hand phones or to turn them to silent mode.

Occasionally you will still hear some tacky songs, polyphonic ring tones or disco techno beat going “dutch dutch dutch dum doo dum” as the owner quickly slides out of Court to answer his precious bouncy call.

Bloody irritating! Sometimes, they even answer the phone before they step out.


Hello? Ha?? I’m in Courtlah. No, not food court but …”….Kaboom!


The Court door shuts and everyone wonders who the bugger was talking to.

Sometimes you can see them trying to figure out which is the off button as the phone happily rings in his hands. “Sorry.. Sorry…”, he would say. I always contained my urge to say:

Hello Mister… if you had put your phone in silent mode, you wouldn’t be in this awkward situation!”

But today it was different. As I was handling my matters, I kept hearing the

Tet tenenet tenenet tenenet” sound in my Court’s speaker.

You’d know that sound means that someone is either receiving or making a phone call / text message. That sound can even come from some computer speakers or radio. I let it go for the first and second time but the sound came back the third time. I thought, enough is enough. The only microphones are before the counsels in my Court so I asked all the lawyers before me:

“Is your phone switched on?”

Everyone said their phone was off. I smelled bullshit! I could’ve asked for everyone’s phone just to check who the culprit is but that would take too long so I gave the following threat in open Court:

If I hear that sound again, I am going to confiscate everyone’s phone in this Court room and keep it up here!”
(pointing to some stack of papers before me which is not visible to the public)

Guess what? The annoying “Tet tenenet tenenet tenenet” sound stopped completely till I got down from the bench. Hahaha! What a JOKE!
