Grammar: Ring

James is the front desk attendant for a high security building. He answers when people ring to get in at the front door. He sees them on the screen and he makes the decision to let them in or not. He knows when they are lying. Something doesn’t ring true when they speak. 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 does not worry about this. If there is ever a problem he can ring the buzzer and six security men will come running. His biggest fear is when his boss rings him up to check on him. James likes his job, though. It is just right for him.
