Does this irritates you too?

I always say my thanks to the inventor of earphones. It allows portable music to be kept within the listener's world. Then came along BIG speakers on mobile phones and SD slots that allow one to carry his whole CD collection with him. And that gave birth to a generation who decides that a long ride on the public transport is a perfect excuse to blast his music through those BIG speakers instead of confining them to his earphones. Just what gave them the idea that the rest of the passengers in the bus or train is eager to be subjected to the kind of music he is blasting or that anyone is going to appreciate his act of torture? I like my rides relatively quiet because that is the only time I can catch up on my sleep or I actually enjoy listening to my own music through my own earphones.
