Windsor, ON – Mike Lalonde, age 54, of Windsor, Ontario has come up with a solution for people who complain about the Amber Alert waking up them up in the middle of the night. “It just hit me the other night when the alert went off at 3:00am. I’ve changed my ring tone on my phone to the sound of the Amber Alert”.
Mr. Lalonde explained further “The problem for most people is that the Amber Alert noise is startling and if it goes off in the middle of the night you find it jarring. However when your phone rings you know someone is trying to get in touch with you to have a chat. This is the best of both worlds really. I want to know about the Amber Alerts but I don’t want to be startled by the sound of the alert. So now that my phone makes the alert sound I’ve gotten totally used to it. I stay informed about alerts and I still get my calls”.
Mr. Lalonde did have another suggestion “Maybe people could just stop kidnapping children. That would work too”.
