Sometimes, It Really Is Best To Mind Your Own Business!

Today my Sister-In-Law came home screaming and hollering. I won't pretend to know the whole story because, well, I really don't care or want to! But, she was yelling on the phone saying if her friend didn't let some guy come and see the kids she was going to go over there and get her to! If that didn't work, she was going to have him go take her to court.

Then, she came back inside, went upstairs and yelled at someone some more. Then, my Brother came home and of course, she had to tell him everything. Sadly, my phone wasn't cooperating so, I had a hard time trying to drown everything out. Normally, I would've just put my headphones on and listen to music because as I said, sometimes, it's best to mind your own business!

Everyone, everyday, has a little 'drama' play out in their Life. Sometimes it's real. Sometimes it's of their own making. The reality is that, rarely, is it something anyone can help with. Usually, it's best to let them 'work through it' themselves; only being there as a sounding board. In the end, if you don't care about the situation, caring about the person is usually all that can be asked. And... If they aren't asking, then you're better off not telling.

I am sorry you had to hear any of it. Hopefully she will be in a good mood tomorrow.

I avoid Hollywood offstage.

I definitely understand that! You don't wanna overhear anything that could upset or annoy you, nor do you wanna wind up involved because you heard it. Sorry your phone wasn't working so you could drown it out. :-/

Sounds like a complicated issue. I'm sorry you had to deal with all of that. I can certainly understand not wanting to get involved. I'm not sure I'd want to either.

Definitely sounds like you made the right decision to put on your headphones. I am looking for noise-cancelling headphones currently. I think you have just shown me another advantage to having them!
Too bad they don't work with the written word! emoticon :winking:

Oh, if you find a good pair, let me know. I was looking for some too. I tried a pair of Sony's, but when I turned the function on and off, it seemed to be about the same. I had a TV playing in the background and I could still hear it.
Hah! Unfortunately, not all drama can be avoided.

Always a good choice!

I found out later that they were working on upgrading the app. I downloaded the update and now it is supposed to make the app more stable. Hopefully, next time it will work for me. I know, there will be a next time, possibly soon since her Son will be home for about a week. School is out for Thanksgiving.

No, I really don't need to hear her. When I heard her say she was going over there, that worried me enough. I didn't want her doing anything crazy. We already had the Police come over twice, looking for her. I don't know why she can't just behave herself..

Bose are the best, but they are certainly pricey, but well worth it, in my opinion. They run about $299, but I have found them at NewEgg for about $20 less than that. I am still looking. I will hold out for them, even if I have to pay the nearly $300

I have heard a lot of good things about Bose. The only ones who don't seem to like them are the "audiophile" community.

They are not the type of headphones I would ever wear if I were walking to tunes or at a gym. They are definitely completely noise cancelling from the outside.

That sounds perfect to me! Are they durable or do they break easily?
