Neal, you have touched on one of my major pet peeves. I detest loud
restaurants. It seems that many people actually enjoy this kind of
thing. I do not understand, they like not being able to carry on a normal
conversation with their dining partners? Perhaps they are too brain dead
from their ear buds to even know what a real conversation is, let alone
enjoy it. I have left restaurants in the past for being unwilling to turn
down their stinking music. Live music is even worse, one would think that
they want people on the next planet to hear it.
