Recently trucks get louder, they make kids cry and wake up ten-thousands of sleepers.
For some reason, this is the one thing here in Taiwan among all other annoyances that I'd love to confront for my personal satisfaction. No doubt you can imaging me yelling at a driver to STFU, but I'd like to find a more sophisticated (and more successful) way.
So far I have spoken politely to 2 drivers who where stopping on the road - of course to absolutely no avail. Both seems so unbelievably callous and indifferent - all they did was compliment me on my Chinese .
It is tricky. We can't report them (like a very loud scooter with illegal tail pipe or a obstructing car) cause AFAIK these trucks and their loud audio are legal. As a first step I'd like to let them know that they are a unwelcome nuisance.
Do you know that they deliberately turn up the volume if they know that a whitey is in the local area?
Now THAT'S micro-aggression
