Rooster Teeth Animated Adventures – Loud and Proud Co-Worker


At my previous job we had a guy who worked with us Who had a couple of really weird, annoying habits I liked the guy a lot But there was one habit th- that he had where- You guys are probably too young to remember these but some of the early, like, cell phones It was this little- little brick, about this big, and it had like an earpiece That you move the earpiece up and that’s how you answered it So he would always have his ringer on full blast And it’s like, not everyone at this point had a mobile phone – So it was kind of like a new thing
– Yeah – That people had mobile phones Um. So his phone would ring and it would be ringing at full volume And he would get it out like this and it would go RING And he’s pick it up, and it’d go RING And then he’d look at it and it’d go RING And then he’d wait for it like this and then it would ring the fourth time And then he’d go CLICK “hello” And it was so fucking annoying, he’d do it every fucking time Especially like, doesn’t matter how quickly he got it out of his pocket He would always hold it there until it rang one more time And then he would answer it – Did he- Did he want everyone to know, he’s like, “I’m receiving a phone call”
-Pretty much That’s all I can- That’s all I can think, is that the guy wanted everyone to know he had it – We actually got on a plane one time
-This is the other thing that it reminded me of it Go for it, Gus He had a laptop When laptops were, again, also much more rare and much more expensive We were flying to L.A. for some reason And, uh, we get to cruising altitude, he busts out his laptop – And starts playing like that built in pinball game
– Microsoft pinball Like in Windows 2000 or something – That game is wicked, by the way – But he has the volume at full blast with no headphones
– Aw, that’s obnoxious And like, everyone in the area in the plane is like We were like “Hey, w-w-we can- we can hear your- we can hear your game” And he’s like “mhm” and it’s like, he wouldn’t turn it down It’s like- I was like “dude, you’re annoying everybody with that, turn it off!” And he’s like “it’s fine”, just playing away, for like 20 minutes At full volume – A lunatic, a lunatic
– I used to love that game – He’d play for 20 minutes because that was battery life for a laptop – It was, yeah
– Because it was the year 2000 And then it was dead

  1. And nowadays we all have co-workers who annoyingly brag about their fancy new smartphones. No, I don't care that it is gold.

  2. Born in '97. First phone was a flip phone. Forget the model, but it was a Samsung. Loved that thing. Then I had a Nokia……

  3. imagine if he did that to the burnie we know today im not sure that would end well for both him and his laptop

  4. The phone thing was to avoid telemarketers. After the third ring their system disconnects, so if it's a 4th ring he knows it's a real person.

  5. In his defense, many people think that if they stay on the line past the fourth ring, their never going to be a wrong number or something like that.

  6. My dad used to take me to work with him when I was about 6 and he'd just dump me at one of the office computers and leave me to play that shitty pinball game for houuurrrsss. It was the most amazing thing when I was a kid.

  7. I remember pinball, gosh I LOVED that game, that and minesweeper were my childhood ….

    …I used to be a very bad nerd ….

  8. im pretty sure the guy had like OCD if he always picked his phone up like that. like he needed it to ring one more time before he answered it otherwise it would have bugged him like alot

  9. Had a girl duck down on a plane to use her cell phone during take off. I debated if it was dangerous or urban myth BS. Before I could come to a conclusion the plane was in the sky.

    Confirmed it's a myth. Screw you Delta Blue! Your food is awful!

  10. "omg gais I had a flip phone"
    *startac is not a flip phone and no you haven't owned one.
    Millenials:
    proving everyone's point since 1990 :Y

  11. LOL i do that with phones. I always have my hand hover over it until it makes one more ring… But that's part of my weird semi OCDness. (i'm not OCD).

  12. Holy crap, the space pinball drawing is done in amazing detail… still can't beat my dad's highscore on that game.

  13. I can relate to the ringing thing. I've known a lot of people from my generation that would just wait for the phone to ring in order to answer it. Like some sort of way to ensure that the call wouldn't be missed. I don't know what happened to phone services back then, but if you answered too quickly, before or mid-ringing, it would cut your answering short.

  14. The one thing that's worse? Old people trying to answer their phone.

    1-2 rings, they don't even realize it's ringing
    3-6 rings of trying to find the phone in their purse(men too.)
    7th ring, phone's upside down.
    8th ring, phone's facing the other way.
    9th-13th ring, looking at Caller ID, deciding on whether to answer or not…

    It. Is. HELL.

  15. i always wait for an extra ring before answering. just to make sure the over person didn't cancel the call.

  16. That is not the kind of phone that Burnie was talking about. Barbara and Gavin are plenty old enough to know what flip phones are. Hell, I'm only 19 and I'm still plenty old enough to remember them.

  17. i haven't played that window pinball game in ages…hell, i haven't played any pin ball game in ages, would love to one day.

  18. My roommate is horrible when it comes to answering cell phones for people. Occasionally, when I get a call, my cell will be in the other room and I can't answer it. My roommate will usually be right next to it (or close by) so I'll ask her to answer my phone for me. So she goes "Okay yah sure". She picks up my phone, and just stares at it, letting it ring! I'll usually hear a "Hey, it's ___ calling, want me to answer it?" At this point I am smacking my head into the nearest wall. I go "YES! Answer it before it goes to voicemail!" and then she goes "Are you sure?". So finally she answers it and then hangs up immediately after. I ask "who was it?" and she ALWAYS says "I dunno, it went to voicemail." GAH!

  19. The dude may have had OCD where he couldn’t answer the phone without it ringing a certain amount of times. It’s possible

  20. My dad once watched an entire engine maintenance video (on his phone) on decently loud volume while I was waiting at my dentist appointment

  21. It feels really condescending of Burnie to say that Barbara and Gavin are probably too young to remember flip phones. They were still a thing in the early 2000s. Of course they know about them. I'm younger than both of them and I know about flip phones! It's really not that foreign of a concept. I'd wager that everyone who is at least 18 today knows about them.
