Positive Encouragement

My close friends have positively encouraged me to keep up with my, "can you please turn down the music volume. You're being inconsiderate of others" mini transit etiquette speech. I know they won't admit to how roughly blunt I sound doing it, regardless of how incredible polite my words are...and I can't admit that it gives me the pleasurable opportunity to keep practicing my direct approach problem solving skills on a regular basis, which I look forward to doing...lol

Not everyone is aware music is loud when they are using ear phones. I have had horrible treatment from others in this case. I was not playing a getto blaster, but had ear buds in.

It's "There's bike routes all over this city and YOU have to ride on the sidewalk".

I remember when I used to take the WestCoast Express, I was sitting in my seat and listening to my music with my earbuds. I'm not someone who listens to music at deafening volumes but apparently, the person beside me with supersonic hearing could hear the faint mumblings of my music and she asked me to turn it down because it was disturbing her. I couldn't even be offended. If your ears are that sensitive then you have bigger problems than me turning down my music one click.

Being considerate of others is considered funny? Even if you have earbuds on the sound can be annoying to others if you're blasting the music ( they can hear it if it's loud enough, DUH! ). It's also bad for you're hearing to have the sound level too high- turn it down so you can hear it but not others. It's a win-win. The you won't have people asking you to politely turn down the music.
