Email! From the Stouffville folk and it's not about where Stouffville is on a map!

subject Finally someone that understands :)

Riding the 6pm stouffville train here, and I have to wonder why some people get all in a huff when you nicely ask them to lower their headphone volumes. Now I know people have (noise canceling) headphones, but every single person around my compartment is looking at him, so clearly his music is too loud.

We can hear all the beats, the lyrics and the sounds of what seems like seriously hardcore music. This guy listening to his rock music gets all mad and leaves after I ask him to turn it down. I only asked him to *lower* the volume.

His response: " I've never been told my music's too loud before." My reply: "People are just too scared to tell you." His reply: "I'm not a scary guy." Mine: "I know, so that's why it'd be nice to turn the volume down."

So he packs up, saying that he would rather remove himself from the situation. Of course, he reminds me to not listen to my own iPod too loud. Aw, how classy and considerate of him!

Ugh... Someone needs to invest in some quality headphones.

Here's what I have to say about M.C.'s willingness to take a stand:


Actually, this deserves three more cheerleaders:

Yay! Way to go MC!

I love it when people stand up for themselves and let people know that their quirk is bothering other people. And it works out well. No shanking or anything.
