Why is it that some restaurants have to have the background music so loud? It does not make for an enjoyable meal.

When we enter, the hostess asks us if we want a table, booth or hearing protection.

It’s no wonder people text all through their meals. They can’t carry on a verbal conversation.

The server gives us the little pad to write down what we want because they can’t hear what we want to order.

We have asked them to turn down the music, but I guess they can’t hear either because it never happens.

We have stopped going to restaurants with loud music and will continue to boycott those places with sound so loud it cracks the glasses.
