I have to remember to bring my earbuds with me when I go out. I'm sitting at the car place waiting for an oil change and the TV is blasting. My least favorite stuff too -- game shows and pharmaceutical commercials.
It's just noise. Irritating noise. Nobody's watching it. Everyone is either on their smartphones or reading the newspaper. But still we need to have this irritating background noise?
Doesn't help that I have a dull headache that I'm hoping won't become a full-blown migraine as that would make it the fourth day in a row with a migraine.
