This is true. I hate it when I have headphones on and people just talk more loudly to compensate.

I HAVE THEM ON BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO YOU, DUMBASS.

(12,000 posts! Well done. )

My music volume has been a constant conflict in my house for six years. Part of it is because I'm hard of hearing and listen to everything at higher volumes, annoying the rest of my household. Other part being I drown out others with music, and none of them do. My father doesn't even listen to music, so there's that.

I once had someone threaten to call the police on me because of music volume. True story.

I love chatty old codgers on trams and trains who just don't get the concept of an iPod and keep talking to you anyway.

And by love, I mean hate.

One of my better 1,000 milestone posts, if I say so myself...

Music volume. Well, my folks have no problem with me playing music over speakers, but I never do because they hate much of what I listen to. Just common courtesy, really. I enjoy headphones, but I'm longing for the day music can be wirelessly transfered into your brain.

I almost always use headphones because, well, the sound quality is better. I only use speakers when I'm doing something out of reach of my headphone cable.

Plus I think I might scare the neighbours with some of my metal.

I can't listen on headphones because then my parents get pissed off when they yell for my attention and I don't respond. So, I listen to music on my iHome. At a relatively low volume.

Describes my father to a T.

Him: You know, back in my day, we didn't wear our hair like that. It was much longer, actually.

Me: *points to headphones*

Him: Those weren't invented until around 1968. We listened to the Beatles on them...it wasn't that great, now that I think of it.
