Love It, Hate It: Headphones

 
Headphones

One of the greatest inventions that we use on a daily basis. It's hard to go through a day without at least seeing someone using headphones to listen to their favorite song.

Why I Love It
Headphones are the easiest way to provide a soundtrack for your life. Whether you listen to music, podcasts, or anything else. You have your own private music station right in the palm of your hand, and you can listen to whatever you want, wherever you want without disturbing anyone around you.

Why I Hate It
Some people don't seem to understand the concept of headphones. If you are listening to music with headphones, I shouldn't be able to clearly hear every single note of what you are listening to.Here's a news flash for you: I don't want to hear your shitty music. 

Please don't misunderstand that statement. I don't care what you listen to; We all have our individual tastes. Everyone has every single right to listen to whatever it is they want. However, I also have the right to enjoy the quiet of the elevator. When you walk on with your iPod set somehow beyond its maximum volume, with your earbuds nearly falling out of your head from the vibration, I begin to think that maybe you are missing the point.

Also, JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN'T HEAR YOURSELF SINGING, DOESN'T MEAN I CAN'T.

I don't quite understand. Do you think that you are selflessly bestowing some sort of gift upon the people around you? Allow me to add on to my previous statement: I don't want to hear your tone-deaf ass try to sing your shitty music.
