#4: Put Some Headphones on
Oh, well, I suppose I might be hopping straight onto the boomer train here because there are very few things that can get me more annoyed on a daily basis than this particular peeve. I mean, when did it become acceptable to just play whatever it is you listening to out loud in everyone’s ears?
I have been exposed to so many strange soundscapes just by sitting on the bus next to teenagers. From private telephone conversations about intimate medical situations to video game commentaries to just plain bad music. These days, it’s on you to protect your ears from noisy neighbors, not the other way around.
