music 2

Bob Noxious asked me if his music was still bothering me and I said no, I got ear plugs. Ever since then I haven't heard any music -- he must have turned it way down, or off.
So it looks like he is a kind and compassionate person after all.
Now I feel guilty for having been angry.
Well at least now I have ear plugs in case I ever need them. If anyone has a noise problem at work, you can get some really nice ear plugs now days.

He _wants_ you to feel guilty.

You can buy him a doughnut, he sounds a doughnut sort of person.

Nice time for a preemptive strike.
You can now destroy all noise producers without the change of being blamed, After all the problem has gone away.

Real PC, I do not get you man.
The music does not bother you because you got earplugs, and now you feel guilty? Djeez!

I hope you followed the "no, I got ear plugs" with an upraised middle finger.

Oh he turned the music back on yesterday. It literally gives me a headache, even though it isn't loud.
The ear plugs are ok, but it's hard to know if someone is talking to me. Also they don't stay in very well.
Needless to say, I wish Bob Noxious would retire soon.
But the real question is -- why does it only bother me?

Maybe you are the only one trying to work ;-).
Then again, maybe they all hate it, but are afraid to speak their mind. Remember how the flok never stood up against the playground bully ...

Start clipping your toe-nails, and make sure some fly over the cube wall.

[maybe they all hate it, but are afraid to speak their mind.]

I don't know. The closest person to the music is our boss. If it bothered him at all I am sure he would say something.

Not if he (mistakenly) believes that this would make him unpopular with the troops. Further, as you said, maybe it realy doesn't bother him, but that does not mean he would not understand others being bothered by it.
There are lots of people that do not mind others smoking, but that still believe you should not smoke where others object.
