Hey You, Your Headphones Suck!
Breathe, Paul Benjamin, Breathe...
So, this morning I was riding the bus to work and sure enough...A Trixie gets on the bus and sits nearby with her headphones blaring!
There's always gotta be one, right?
It's annoying whenever it happens, but it is especially annoying on the morning commute. Most people are very quiet in the morning, either reading the paper or listening to gentle music on their ipods.
So when an obnoxious girl gets on the bus and selfishly blares her music, it's quite the jolt!
I have never hit a woman in my life, but if i were to start....!!!!
Seriously, people were giving her dirty, dirty looks. Of course, she looked oblivious to it all, with those huge sunglasses on that covered her entire face!
And the worst part? It was TERRIBLE music!
Oh yeah, it was some gross stuff. I could hear it clear as day, like someone was actually playing a radio!
I wanted to say something to her so bad, but decided, "Let it go, Paul. It's not worth it..."
To get to work, I can take 1 of 4 different buses that go past my house. The bus I took this morning requires me to get off and then walk about 10 minutes to the office...OR, I could walk a block and transfer to a different bus to take me to the office.
This is a popular practice. The funny thing is, this girl did the same thing!
So naturally, when we were the only two people at the bus stop waiting to transfer, I decided to say something to her.
Yeah, that's right...I did it.
I looked at her and said with a friendly, approachable smile, "Excuse me...You really need to get better headphones."
She looked befuddled.
"Either that, or you are just incredibly rude. But I'm sure it's just your bad headphones..."
I'm still keeping it very light and friendly, hoping that this gets the point across.
I'm guessing she didn't care, as she looked away from me with an angry, scrunched face.
She never looked back at me.
I think she got the hint, though...
