mom vs mp3 May 7, 2008 These days, I shout a lot. Not because I’m angry with my kids but because they can’t hear me with that mp3 player perpetually blasting in their ear. I’m sure my neighbors can hear me better. 3 teens = 3 mp3s stuck in 3 pairs of ears Apparently if you’re a teen and you don’t have some wire hanging out of your ears, you ain’t cool! I guess that’s a good way to shut out mom and rock to your own tune, eh? Kids: You don’t have to shout, Mom, we’re not deaf. Mom: How else can you hear me with that thing blasting in your ear?!! I said, pick up your clothes, you haven’t done it yet! Silence. Mom: Did you hear me??!! No, you didn’t, that mp3 is too loud!! Grrr!!
