It is terribly rude of her

I think you could try tapping the seat to the Terminator theme stylee, or a bit of tuneless humming, or how about reading this thread our loudly. Hur hur.

If you're not alone talk loudly with friends she won't be able to hear anything

Very rude. I had a woman listening to music on her phone without headphones. I asked her not to, she stared at me and said, ok, once I've finished listening to this song. It wasn't even particularly memorable music, more musak than anything special.

I have asked her again. She has now stopped. I guess most people just deal with it by turning up their own headphones. I was at the pub recently and at next table family were watching two different devices with no headphones.

She's a bitch obv. You could always sit beside her and start a running commentary on what she's watching.

It's rude. There were two people on the train on the next table to me today listening to music with no headphones. I asked them to turn it off. At first they saidyes but didn't do so. They complied at the second time of asking but I did have to be a bit more forceful.

I remember a woman listening to music without headphones in the gym a while ago, I got my revenge when we happened to be in the ladies and she was making a phone call.
Very loud hand drier, I used it for ages so she couldnt hear a thing grin

This happened to my DH. He just played the Birdy Birdy Woof Woof song from Peppa Pig loudly for about 30 seconds from his Iphone and they soon stopped.

When I was on the maternity ward before having DD I had a roommate who watched Twilight on her iPad without earphones. Luckily I had my own headphones and the Gilmore Girls box set or there would have been carnage.

Fairly commonplace these days. Astonishing, but sadly not that rare. And no, the ticket inspectors generally don't care. I like tulips suggestion though :-)

What an utter cunt.

Rude. Very rude.

This is why I can't risk commuting again. I'd turn into Michael Douglas in Falling Down or have a stroke.

I work from home and just get annoyed with myself for faffing on mumsnet or for my untidy house <connected issues>

If she was watching Line of Duty you could have told her who did it
