Fixed. Seriously, how else can the "music" at Wellcome, Carrefour, or Cosmed be explained?!

I have to say, I am starting to believe that may be true. We have an elder Gentleman,who walks past every day at 5.50am,talking so loudly(almost shouting) ,that it wakes us. There seems to be a total lack of consideration,when it comes to noise. People are as loud at 2 am in a quiet street. :raspberry:

Oh god, don't get me started. And then you get the Groundhog day effect of returning to a store a week later.....and the same "music" is still looping.

I've sat in cafes with two songs looped for an hour. I'd take water boarding any day of the week over that.
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.
