I can't STAND my co-worker's listening habits!
He has these junk ass Harmon Kardon PC speakers. They are total junk and bring shame to the H/K name. They are hooked up to his laptop and he sits here all day playing lame disco or 70's top 40's hits. It gives me a headache.
I can deal with the music just fine if it was played on something with some sort of sonic clarity to it. Even my Polk Audio computer speakers would be a better option.
So I offered to play his CD's in the stereo on my desk. He declined because he said that he wants control. So I threw in a Sting CD to listen to. He complained that I was playing the music too loud. So I switched to the computer speakers and it was still too loud. Now I am sitting here listening to ABBA in the background because I can't play any music because then he can't hear his music over mine.
Not to whine or anything but where is the "fair use" here? The policy at work is we can have such things if they are not disturbing to others. So basically, the way it goes is, he can disturb everyone else with his weenie music but no one can disturb him at all. I think I'd better stop now because he says the typing is too loud. I might be thinking too loud for him now too!
