Internet Cafe - is it OK to blast a movie on your laptop? I asked him to stop

<< < (3/3)

It's not rude to tell someone blasting sound in a public place "Do you mind watching that with headphones? I find it very distracting."

Then go to someone with authority.

You try doing the authority thing first without a staff person there. Theres a small branch of my library near where I work. It's unattended but you can use a phone that will put you in contact with a member of library staff. But there's an unspoken code there of no talking, which one guy was in ignorance of one morning when he skyped his girlfriend. He didn't notice everyone staring at him, and it took the combined efforts of three library sees, including me, to convince him to take his call outside.
