OK, so after getting side tracked and going to Home Depot to buy a rug that I got a sudden compulsion to go buy, I stopped in at Meijers North to buy a couple of items for my mother. Coming out of the store I'm immediately aware of this blaring music. I mean it sounded like I was standing with my ear against a speaker. I absolutely hate when people do that. What on this green earth would make anyone think that everyone wants to hear their freaking music as much as they do? Now I would have understood if it had just been loud enough to hear and make out, but this was extremely loud and annoying and let me tell you it was not good music! To top it off the person blaring this music was a man who looked like he was probably pushing sixty. Not that age is a bad thing I'm no spring chicken, but you at least usually expect this behavior out of adolescent children that somehow under some misguided notion thinks this loud music makes them cool. Let me see if I can address that. It doesn't make one look cool. It simply cuts down on the life of your hearing abilities, annoys people around you, makes you look like a complete idiot and I'm guessing cuts down on the life of your speakers. But please if someone has a compelling reason why I should be able to hear your music when you are at least three rows out at the front door of Meijers and feel pain because it's so loud. Please feel free to enlighten me. After all it's only my opinion.
