You know what bothers me more than this, well there is a lot, but concerning earbuds. People that drive listening to music with earbuds, controlling their iphone/ipod to change tracks and etc... I just get this urge to hit them in traffic and then bring evidence in court showing that they were listening to their ipod and then they pay for the damages, physical ailments I incurred and my mental instability due to the accident. But yeah, buy some headphones and listen to some music, not too difficult. If you don't want to listen to music listen to a NPR or something. I used to record conan o'brien and convert his monologue to mp3 so i can listen the next morning on the way to school/work. They take effort to annoy you, you make an effort to be annoyed, use your effort to balance it out.
