I'm on my way to downtown again, and there's a guy on the bus who's playing his music so loudly WITH HIS HEADPHONES ON! I can hear his music (and I use that term loosely), and he’s about 8-feet away. I know it’s him, because he’s bee-bopping along in rhythm with the sound. Ridiculous.
Actually, this is rather a frequent occurrence, not necessarily with the same guy, but also with others. So, in response, I've put on my headphones too loudly in order to drown out his. Someday, someone will base their Master’s Thesis on the epidemic of hard of hearing public transportation riders.
It would be so much better if this guy would listen to decent music, or maybe was listening to something neutral, like 80s music. Ha. I can hear my husband groaning about that comment. He's got some very strong, negative thoughts on 80s music.
On long trips, when it's my turn to drive, that's what we listen to, 80s music...The person driving is in control of the radio, right?
I have known him to drive from home to Florida without me getting behind the wheel, at all...I wonder, is that why? Is it radio control? Do I have a higher tolerance for Warren Zevon, (one of his faves, that I can't abide beyond “Werewolves of London”- sorry Warren, don't haunt me), than he does for Journey?
Could be I've solved a marital, over-the-road, long trip traveling mystery.
