I'm sitting in a coffee shop MNing, enjoying a rare half hour of freedom and nursing a wicked headache due to lack of sleep (thanks DS!). It is mostly empty in here so pretty quiet, with ambient soft rock playing from the shop's speakers. A man sat down two tables away with a laptop and headphones. I don't know what he's listening to but the beat coming from his headphones is SO LOUD. And it completely clashes with the music already being played. I can't imagine how loud it must be directly in his ears! I've given him a few dirty looks but no luck. WIBU to ask him politely to turn it down??

go and ask him or if you don't feel able to ask the coffee shop owner. you probably aren't the only one being disturbed. I do hate this selfish behaviour but perhaps he is unaware of how loud it is.

Thanks. I probably am the only one being disturbed bc there's nobody else near us. Actually there is one guy. I really hate this shit too. I resent being put in the awkward position of having to approach someone who is a grown man and should know better (or at least should have known when he saw my dirty looks!)

Maybe he thinks the dirty looks are you flirting with him? #nothelpful

But I hate this sort of thing too, used to have to catch a very early train, and would frequently have to ask people to turn their music down.

Is there a table a bit further away you can move to? If not I would just ask him politely, yes. He probably has no idea how loud it sounds outside the ear phones.
