I am currently sitting in my favorite cafe. I come here once per week because my work schedule has me around the corner and the food is good. Tuesdays are my longest work day (about 15 hours, typically) and I only have 30 minutes for lunch. I come here to clear my head, have some peace and quiet and eat a quick bite.
There is a table across the restaurant that has two small children (ages 2 and 4, probably) that are watching a movie on their mom’s phone so loud that I cannot hear the restaurant music being played on the speaker directly above my head.
I have noticed an onslaught of this type of behavior recently. Apparently it is becoming socially acceptable to play loud and annoying videos in public, without consideration of others. What happened to headphones?? It’s not just children either, adults are plenty guilty. I’ve had this happen on airplanes, subways, restaurants and even in the gym. It’s so annoying and rude in my opinion.
Any thoughts? 1017-17
