Music Music Music

Does anyone in this world appreciate silence? If so, why does every store in this godforsaken country play non-stop music? And not just the stores, you can't go into a restaurant without some form of music as background noise. What's worse, most of the time it is nothing to get your toe to tapping or your head bobbing along with the beat. One restaurant we visited on our return from Chicago had nothing but C&W and it was not good C&W (neither was the food by the way but I'll talk more about traveling and food another time).

If it is supposed to be a mood changing effort it sure works sometimes but for me it goes from good to bad and it does not relax me or make me want to buy things. I certainly don't digest my food more efficiently when crappy music is audible. But the worst is yet to come since it is now November. Christmas music has already hit the airwaves. I started to see decorations before Halloween and that is irritating enough, now the noise is playing, horrible renditions of crappy music. Frankly I'm surprised they waited until November. No wonder so many people do their shopping online, at least they don't have to deal with the hillbilly version of Silent Night.

oh yes, that has already started here as well. It makes me crazy, especially in restaurants.
