So I went hiking with people from work.
A couple of us took a ride in this guy’s van. Obviously a devout Christian, he played gospel music/Christian pop during the ride and held an unexpectedly animated conversation about the songs and the latest releases and so on with another guy. If it wasn’t for the music playing, they could’ve been discussing the Billboards Top 40 and I’d never know. The music was, well, new and interesting to say the least. But it’s his car, so whatever.
Later, as we began the hike, I watched in horror as he pulled two portable speakers out of his backpack and stuck one in each mesh side pocket. He plugged them into his iPhone and proceeded to play that music over Hong Kong’s hills and coastline.
I don’t care if it’s Christian music, death metal, or Miley Cirrus. Who the fack subjects innocent, unsuspecting people around you to whatever your taste in music? In the countryside? Hiking?! I have very tolerant views of religion. But REALLY?!
Thank goodness for Mother Nature. Coz the wind, ocean and general bigness of the landscape drowned out the noise from his tinny speakers and he was forced to abandon his attempt to ruin my day with this ridiculous racket.
