I still find it strange that people -in general- would recognize a sound like this but still laugh at it...
Everybody knows what the TOS communicator noise sounds like. Everybody also likes to laugh at Trek fans. We're easy targets, as anyone who's seen Trekkies
But what the hell, this was years ago when it happened to me. Maybe people have changed since then. Perhaps I should think of some snappy comebacks...then again, it would be better to get laughed at then have my ass kicked.
