I think i've probably ruined a hundred opportunities for life-long love and happiness.
This isn't a comforting thought.
Every day I forget my headphones I'm reminded just how horrible the serendipity of every day life is.
some guy - "you don't expect it to be sunny in Manchester, do you?"
some chick - "yeah, it's always raining!!(!!1!FUCKOFF)"
bullshit small talk, but then she asks where he's from, and it's pretty obvious they're going spend at least a few months fucking and watching Netflix.
you should be reet
Do a survey of how many people you know met their partner by getting chatting on the street. Bet it's zero.
but i hear that people meet in supermarkets quite a lot nowadays
Listening to the latest Vampire Weekend album on the bus >>>> Having to talk to the Gideon's Bible man on the bus.
I like to drown people out and appear quite rude and unapproachable (unfortunately does not happen)
have shop workers recently been trained to ignore your headphone listening and greet you with their big grinny 'Have you ever been to a shop before can I force you to buy something please don't make me lose my job buy it here and not on amazon smiley face'
or is it just a coincidence that it's been happening to me lately?
Works every time
I wear mahoosive over the ear ones (akg k702s)
and of course I take them off/mute the sound when being served - but I mean when you walk into a store and get pounced on with the 'can I help you/is there something you're looking for' thing
I was going to say you were the RUDEST PERSON EVER TO EXIST, but it is acceptable to have them in when those people start pure harassing you.
you people are the worst. please consider for a second how soul-destroying it is if you have to do the same bullshit with hundreds of people every week just in case they happen to be a mystery customer.
just. fuckingtakethemoff. D:
(I'm on my way into work :( )
Quite like the sound of birds and people and (in small doses) traffic. Get a bit weirded out by people who are permanently soundtracking everything.
But you know, a nice background hum of shuffling and beeps can add to the atmosphere, SOMETIMES.
makes you weird?
it's very normal AND acceptable
I guess that means i don't love music.
* this happened to me and my mate 2 weeks back. Neither of us knew how to react
is being insulted by them
sometimes when im walking down the street and i see some one i know and dont particularly want to talk to them its acceptable to ignore them whilst wearing headphones.
i just point at my ears and do this face http://i.imgur.com/iOKWLJ3.jpg
need to either buy new headphones or superglue my old ones cause the band has snapped
