Every morning I get on the train to go to school. And every morning inside the train I meet people my age playing music on their mobile phones without headphones. The sounds from the mobile phone speakers are usually crackling and the choice of music may be irritating to our ears. I used to do nothing about it until I realized that people around me were actually annoyed too by these events. Seeing that, I decided to take action.
I usually tell people politely that the sounds from their phones disturb other people. People also can’t listen to the train announcements clearly. I ask them to use their headphones so that we can have a win-win solution for both the music listeners and for the rest of the passengers. If they do not have headphones. I ask them to turn down the volume. Many do not realize that the acts annoy others inside the trains. After I told them, they are usually embarrassed or slightly upset.
One day I got on the train and heard someone beside me listening to music from his speaker phone. As always. I asked him to respect others and to plug in his headphones. He said, “I know. I was about to fart and the music can hide the sound. I just wanted to be polite to other people”. I did not know what to say afterwards.
