Throw Loudies from the Wine Train! Choo Choo!

Standard

ย 

This article was sent by my husband because of an inside joke (one that I will not be sharing here) about loud people. On our many travels, we have encountered groups of extremely loud people. Ones so loud that it’s disruptive to others in the surrounding area and makes it difficult to hear what your own group members are saying, let alone enjoy whatever activity you’re partaking in.

Now, I’m not saying that you can’t make some noise but, as always, there is an acceptable level with any activity and outing. Some people exceed that. For the record, I have been part of a group of “too loud” people and have felt mortified having others stare in disgust or aggravation because it’s disrupted their good time.

This article also struck a chord with me on another level. Frankly, I’m sick of people playing the “race card”. Now don’t me wrong, I don’t live in a rose colored world where everyone is treated equal. I don’t. That’s not my point.

But, seriously… How self-absorbed are people that they think anything bad that happens to them is because of the color of their skin? How about… you got kicked off the bus because you were being super loud, extremely disrespectful to the other passengers and were repeatedly asked to keep down the noise level and refused to take the FREE tickets for your own private vehicle?? How about them apples?

Maybe next time, don’t be so damn selfish that you think everyone on that train wants to hear your cackling comments and every word out of your mouth at top decibel.

Rant over….
