To everyone on the bus who gets annoyed if they can hear someone's music playing through their headphones while they are listening to their mp3 players/discman...I have a question for you...If I have to listen to your annoying fucking loud conversations, gum snapping in my ears, obnoxious laughing fits and inane cell phone conversations at FULL volume, why can't I crank my tunes on my player? It is not unusual for me to get on the bus and have some dipshits practically yelling comments at each other right behind me at such high volumes that my mp3 player on full blast still doesn't drown out their goddamn voices! And no, I do not keep my player on full blast on the bus, because I am courteous of other people around me. However, once I was listening to my music at medium volume and the bus driver stopped the bus, turned and looked at me, so I turned the volume down to see what the deal was. He politely said 'thank you' and started the bus again. Now, I assure you, the decibel emitting from my headphones in my ears could not have been more than that of a dull whisper, but I had a bus driver stop to get me to turn it down, which I did politely. I just pisses me off that people can practically scream their conversations at each other, yell into their cellphones and be rude in countless other ways with zero consequence. They are certainly much louder than my 'headphoned' mp3 player could ever be, and ten times as 'ear-assaulting'. So next time you hear someone's mp3 player on the bus, take note to see if there are ten 'loud-as-fuck' asswipes yapping their gobs off and evaluate who is hurting your ears (and your sanity) more.
