ringing the bell

Was just reading this boing-boing post on a wireless bell for a restaurant (http://www.boingboing.net/2008/10/02/restaurant-features.html), and it reminded me of our first trip to Yo Sushi! in London, and ringing the bell there.

For anyone that hasn't been, it's a chain of Sushi restaurants, and there is always a bell you can push to grab attention of a waiter (to order some yummy hot food or more miso or green tea mmm). At some branches, the bell is a nice quiet ding thing with a light, but at the first one we visited (at The Brunswick, Russell Square, London, I think), it was a huge jarring noise with a big flashing light, that totally made us jump! Very embarrassing, until you realise everyone else has a big noisy one too, and it's not really *that* loud...
