Why would people play multiple stereos at the pool or (insert all places) at the same time ? Look… as unfair as it might seem, the person who puts on the first music claims rights until he or she leaves. If you get there second and you hate hearing “Baby Got Back” blaring from the other side of the pool, I’m sorry but please don’t try to drown out Sir Mix A Lot with some rendition of “She thinks my tractor is sexy.” I get it, your amp is special, it goes up to eleven, but you are giving me a headache.
One day this summer I was at the pool and saw one group of friends piled around a boombox cooler (best idea ever btw). one guy in the water playing music because he was so hip he had a waterproof iPhone case and then there is the guy. Ya that guy…
You’ll know him when he jumps into the conversation with “oh dude, I didn’t realize we were gonna play music out here today” and then leaves. 10 minutes later you have what could be a full car stereo system sitting out on the pavement. This crazy picture is only to be topped by the amount of unprotected electrical cords and extension cables laying around wet surface …leading to a body of water… full of people.
Now its decision time -”I could turn off the music on my cooler boombox, but his music sucks. He is clearly using Pandora, and I have all the best albums on Spotify. People will appreciate my music more than his mainstream crap”
So, the boombox battle begins and for the next 2 hours the pool sounds like “shhxxxxxhsssssssssssssshcccccccsdhhfhgdjfhgkdsdfg”
