Dreadful noise is not music to the ears
I ADD my thoughts regarding noise in coffee shops and everywhere. No matter where you go, this dreadful noise (I refuse to dignify it as music) assails your ears.
One has to shout to make one's self heard.
My daughter and I walked out of a restaurant at the weekend for this very reason.
Who I wonder, decided we had to be entertained every moment of every day. This awful noise also drives me out of shops very quickly.
