Grammar: Ring

James was the front desk attendant for a high security building. He answered when people rang to get in at the front door. He saw them on the screen and he made the decision to let them in or not. He knew when they were lying. Something didn’t ring true when they spoke. Once, when a thief was trying to get in, James even heard a shot ring out through the intercom. The thief actually tried to shoot the door down or break the security system with his gun.

James did not worry about this. If there was ever a problem he rang the buzzer and six security men came running. His biggest fear was when his boss rang him up to check on him. James liked his job, though. It was just right for him.
