It’s an age thing.
Walking into the doctor’s office, the music blaring through the “system” was very upbeat. In fact listening to it made me jittery.
By nature, I am a calm and collected person. Easy going is an understatement.
Each and every song that played had some repetitive rap component mixed in with the “music.”
Waiting in a doctor’s lounge is tough enough in that they are never on time. Arriving there in a timely fashion is part of the deal and waiting for an extra 30 to 45 minutes after your appointment is also “part of the deal.” Their time is valuable and yours, well…not so much!
The waiting is not what was bothering me however as I had my “smart phone” to entertain me. At issue, however, was this hideous music that was getting under my skin much like poison ivy or a horrible sunburn, you can tolerate it for just so long and then it just pisses you off!
The lyrics were not understandable and as I said the beat was such that it by itself was making me jittery.
I found myself thinking that I might need to find another doctor. If this is the new norm, screw it!
One already feels bad going to the doctor, forced to endure that bullshit, I don’t need!
Leaving on the drive home, thinking back to my parents yelling at me to shut my door or turn that “shit” down; I had to laugh. It could be that it is simply an age thing, and now what folks listen to today is “shit” to me.
Turning on the XM to 70’s music, I calmed, returning my blood pressure to where it belonged.
People today suffer from high blood pressure and one has to wonder how much of it is caused by the music that they listen to.
