February 25, 2015: My one errand today that got me to leave the condo was a big fat fail. Went to my usual mechanic for a routine oil change and after waiting for an hour and a half at the GHETTOest Country Style coffee shop, I came back only to be told to come another day. Uruguay!!!!! And to top it all off, there was a battle of the music apps at the coffee shop! One lady thought it was okay to play her music out loud from her phone and I assume the lady behind me was so ticked off she decided to fight back and play her own music on her phone. At one point I looked around to see if anyone was noticing anything or perhaps it was my crazy imagination because no one seemed to give a poop! And then at one point I tried really hard to listen to see if perhaps the music was coming from the shop’s speakers because who in their right mind would think playing music from their phone is okay (and at a decibel much louder than the normal indoor speaking voice)? So then I thought, perhaps they don’t know that their ear buds are not working?? But they weren’t wearing any!!!!! Seriously?!? And this is not the first time either! I’ve seen it plenty on the subway… what’s going on? Is this a trend now or something??
