Let’s go and talk where we can’t hear each other

Like most, I love to go out and talk with people. And like most, I often do that over a drink. But I just don’t understand when people go to places either so crowded or with music so loud that it’s really hard to hear what the other person is saying.

 

Shouting

I see this fairly often: a group of people obviously came to some place only to talk — and not to dance, for example — but they have to shout into one another’s ear to be able to communicate. I just don’t get it, or maybe no one wants to be the first to suggest moving some place else.

 

La méthode

… is usually the kind of place I first think of when going out to have a drink and talk with people.
