Dear Man Listening to Music Loudly on the Train,

I would move, but my ass is comfortable. Unlike your eardrums. Surely you realise that listening to music at full volume not only pisses off other passengers – as they can hear the fluctuating hisses through your earbuds – but also will, one day, result in rendering you deaf.

But hey, whatever man. Do what you want. Just know that everyone on the carriage wants to stab you in the eyeballs with a spork.

Then you’d be blind and deaf.

Seething regards,
