Simple Mind: Noise And More Noise

I have gotten so I hate to shop anymore…If I go to Wal-mart or Yokes, I have started going at 8am.. or even earlier. It isn’t the crowd.. the crying babies, although that does get to me, if it is the high pitch seal squeal type.  It isn’t even the baskets parked in the middle of the aisle.. although if I am in a hurry that irritates me as well.  You know the type, who park the basket towards the middle and then stand in the left over space. What it is, is the constant talking.. not two people, but the ones on the phones.. what is it about those on cell phones who feel like they have to share their side with everyone in the store, using their outside voices?/From A Simple Mind. More here. (AP file illustration)

Question: What kind of noise bothers you?
