@aaronpk It’s not regional and in addition to being annoying, if they are near enough to me it literally hurts my autistic brain, even when I’m wearing my ear defenders.
@aaronpk I haven't been to Memphis since before this was accessible technology. But it does seem more common in St. Louis than in Seattle. (And is blessedly rare in Amsterdam except among tourists.)
@aaronpk that’s disturbing. I don’t see that here in SF. Every so often there’ll be someone watching a video with audio on transit, but they get “the eye” for it.
