First world emergencies

Today I scolded a man who was listening to audio on his computer without headphones. Apparently he is from the local newspaper. Their offices are just across the street and their internet connection went down an hour before a big funeral procession for a local celebrity was due to pass through the area. He wanted me to make an exception because it was "kind of an emergency."


  1. so what was he listening to? radio coverage of the procession?

    1. I think he was listening to a broadcast of the funeral service. Still, though.

  2. sure, why shouldn't he inflict his noise on everyone in this dire emergency? people's lives are at stake...oh wait, they're not.
