Re: I hate seeing people wearing headphones in public.
I've seen a lot of people walking around with their music just playing out loud from their phone. They're the worst people alive. Every time I walk past someone doing it (a silly amount of times it's happened) I always get the urge to just launch into a tirade on them and then I realise there's about a million other things I'd rather do then talk to someone in that social class. Not everyone wants to listen to your music when you're walking in the street.
The idea that wearing headphones is rude is hysterical too. I guess if you're intending to walk somewhere with someone you know who you know is likely to engage in conversation with you then it's kinda rude. Otherwise what the fuck are you expected to do? Only have one headphone in case of the rare case where someone you know walks past you and wants to ask how your day is? Who the fuck does that? Stops and chats? Either smile or nod as you walk past and let me move on with my life and whatever I was doing.
Beats are a marketing masterpiece. Stick a pair on Kobe and run an advert with a load of hip celebs wearing them in different colours and then you can add an extra Ł200 to the price and get away with it. Amused by people developing a hatred towards people who wear Beats in public like they all have an alterior motive than wanting to listen to their music on the move and look cool doing it. Beats look cool. People like to look cool. Where's the issue?
