I just woke my entire household up. Not to mention giving myself such a fright I almost shot my chair halfway across the room!
I clicked a link on Twitter to read an article or blog post (I'm so traumatized I can't even remember now) and an ad on the page yelled at me.
The volume was up on my computer, and it was really LOUD. Loud enough to wake up my youngest son who sleeps like a brick. Loud enough to wake up my partner who was working until 2am. Loud enough to coax my older son out of his bedroom where he was reading.
I guess it got my attention, but the noise was so shocking, I shut the page right away and have no idea what the ad might have been for. And I don't imagine I'm the only one. I just don't expect webpages to make noise unless I press 'play' or something. When they do, it frightens me. I think I need to remember to keep my volume turned down. Just in case.
Has this ever happened to you?
