...is a woman pushing 50 who listens to weird-*** trance/electronica remakes of 80's songs all day long.

Also, she talks like Ned Flaners. "Ex-act-a-dackt-ally!"

Smiley: um

I don't believe you.

It's being piped in through the internet or an MP3 collection or something. I can't imagine there's an economic niche for 24hr broadcasts of "Betty Bette Davis Eyes" trance remixes.

Bette Davis, not Betty Davis, of course. I blame the ecstasy I've been dropping to get into the music.

Bite the bullet and "gift" her a $5 pair of headphones. That's how I got the new intern to stop flooding the office with "gansta rap".

Sadly, headphones won't really work since the job is one where you're moving around too much. It's a problem with an expiration date though as she's moved to part time and is phasing out over the winter anyway.

Still peculiar though.

Maybe the music helps her deal with the weird new guy.

I've only got three trance remixes out of a vast collection stretching from many years that are remixes from 80s or 90s pop songs, and those are actually pretty good....

I can't imagine a whole radio station devoted to it. It sure as **** isn't on di.fm Smiley: dubious

To be fair, you didn't say where you sit/stand/work/whatever in relation to her. But usually, these kinds of "I can hear the other person's music" issues occur in cubicle farms and not when the people in question each have their own private offices. Unless she's playing said music very loud and it's wafting down the hall or something, I suppose.

I see you and Varus have extremely limited workplace experiences if you assume either everyone is in a cubical farm or else in separate offices hallways away from one another.

So it wasn't illiteracy but rather limited life experience. Fair enough Smiley: smile

We have a warehouse environment at my office. 6 or so desks lining the walls, and a giant set of tables in the middle called the "in-bench." The managers get offices, but I'm okay with just having two monitors on a nice desk with a pretty comfy office chair.

I had a co-worker once who loved to crank the classic rock for hours but when it was someone elses turn to play something(we had a nice equal system) he'd **** and moan.
The solution was this.



After 5 minutes he left the job site and didn't comeback for 2 days. Productivity increased.
