    I worked in the fabric department and we had a bell on our table. Everyone just had to ring it even if you were standing right there and not even waiting on other customers. Even little kids asked if they could ring the bell. Now the rest of the story:

    I was cutting some fabric one evening when a couple came in. She was headed to the pattern drawers and as they passed the table I heard her tell her husband, "And don't you even think about ringing that bell!" I had finished the fabric cutting when I noticed he had gotten bored and was looking around at things and ended up at the table. He was looking at the bell like a little kid that has been told not to do something and being the silly person I am, I told him, "Oh, go ahead and ring it." Of course he did and it had not even stopped ringing till his wife was around the corner with the look on her face that he was in big trouble. Now what was so funny...He pointed straight at me and said, "She said I could!!!" We couldn't do anything but laugh and I said I was sorry if I got him in trouble, but he wanted to ring that bell so I let him. His wife gave an understand look, directed at her husband and they left. Pricelless...."She said I could!!"

    Not what I expected when I saw the title of this thread. Instead of a rant I got a chuckle. Thanks for brightening my day.

    I don't know a button or bell a boy/man can resist if it is one he's never rang or pushed.
