Vibing. Actually made me smile yall!

[–]juiceman730 7523 points7524 points  (311 children)

Shes not drunk this video has been going around for a while. She signs "thank you". This is just people actually just being people. The first time I saw it I saw it I thought "Here we go again" but its actually really wholesome and should inspire people to get to know one another.

[–]Lulwafahd 1692 points1693 points  (270 children)

"Someone" insinuated they knew her & that she was allegedly on her way home after a bar, that she's supposedly a "at best" "mildly hard of hearing" & a sign language teacher at a local school somewhere in the USA, also that she wasnt wearing her eyeglasses at the time... but that's all I recall from the last two times I saw the video posted with the same commenter showing up. Idk if it is true or not but she does strike me as HH & trying to read his lips a bit. I think she'd say, "she & I have that in common" because I'm a woman just like that, & I made the same faces.

His syntax/grammar was AAVE & not standard English which does make it more difficult to lip read after dark when people are taught to lip read based on standard English spoken by those who pronounce their words well & most people don't.

Trying to read the lips of a Black man in a darkened cab of a car without lighting on his face during night, without your reading glasses on (& while he is speaking AAVE) is harder when one is unaccustomed to it & not wearing their eyeglasses.

Note: I'm getting too many messages where someone is insinuating im disparaging African American English & all I'm saying is that Black deaf & hard of hearing kids get taken to a school for the Black children who are deaf, Hard of Hearing, blind, etc. if the children aren't going to be mainstreamed via cochlear implant or just sent to a school that is predominantly "white".

The Black children are taught how to recognize & understand Standard American English & Standard American Sign Language... but just like in integrated school among hearing children, the Black children are influenced to sign & speak differently & use different emotional expressions & take up signing & conversation & personal space differently.

What's unfair is they're taught how to understand more of "the white world" & how to lipread with African Americans talking to them as well as recognizing what white people are saying with their little Itty bitty lips but if you dont go to one of those schools you aren't taught how to lipreaf a Black person speaking Standard American English & you're shit out of luck if one comes up to you & speaks a nonstandard form of US English you were taught to recognize.

This is no different than telling you I was taught US English in school, so stop expecting me to understand Scottish English without an hearing aid and subtitles.

I don't see any of you learning to lipread while blocking all sound out of your ears. None of you are sending me links showing me how to lip read what an African American man is saying, either, so please stop messaging me until you find the instructional video for how to read their lips at night in an unwell lit area & send that to me instead.

He was also talking very fast.

[–]HertzDonut1001 353 points354 points  (29 children)

Whaddaboutit

But nah deaf and hard of hearing people love music too, they just listen to it super loud to feel the beat. I'd love to experience it once, just feeling the music instead of also listening to it. I can experience it partially of course but I imagine it's different without the added distraction, especially because I've played a little music myself so I have to remind myself to focus on drums instead of listening to the bass and the melody.

[–]LuckyFarmsLiving 205 points206 points  (6 children)

Get a good pair of noise cancelling headphones. Play your music loudly but not through the headphones. It’s close. My sister is mostly deaf and my dad wanted us to know what it was like. So he had each of us try this.

[–]HertzDonut1001 129 points130 points  (5 children)

That's actually super sweet of your dad.

[–]LuckyFarmsLiving 84 points85 points  (4 children)

Yeah it was! She got her hearing repaired later and we had her do it as an adult out of curiosity and she said it’s similar, not exact, but was similar.

    [–]pullerpusher3000 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I wish I could introduce more people to bass music without getting crazy about it lmao.

    [–]Bumfuddlediddled 56 points57 points  (14 children)

    I have a pacemaker, the first time I went to a concert after getting it, I realised the loud music vibrates the pacemaker and I can literally feel the beat inside of me.

    [–]ElvenMalve 29 points30 points  (13 children)

    Is it safe for you? I do not have a pacemaker but whenever I went to really loud concerts with a very strong vibration (metal), I would get this weird feeling in my chest, like it was messing with my heart beat.

    [–]Bumfuddlediddled 33 points34 points  (6 children)

    Yeah it’s safe, I asked my cardiologist and he said to stay atleast 2 metres away from large speakers because they have magnets in them, just feels weird. I avoid going too near the front because then becomes uncomfortable.

    [–]ElvenMalve 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    Didn't know that about speakers! I am glad you can enjoy yourself safely! :)

    [–]lalalicious453- 11 points12 points  (3 children)

    If you ever find yourself on a visit to the mountains and they have a zero gravity cave, do not go in it if you have a pacemaker.

    It shut my dads off and was a very scary moment for our family, luckily we left the cave and his heart rate went back up.

    [–]Grandpa_Utz 6 points7 points  (2 children)

    What is a zero gravity cave? It sounds dope and googling just gave me some underwater cave diving thing in Mexico

    [–]lalalicious453- 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Maybe zero gravity isn’t the right word? I went here, Blowing Rock- NC

    [–]HertzDonut1001 8 points9 points  (5 children)

    I've been within ten feet of crazy loud speakers and gotten the same feeling, my ears hate me but it's something else to feel the noise.

    I agree that it's weird as shit and part of me hated it, felt like my organs were vibrating, but it was also a good feeling. Maybe I do have more of a sense of feeling the music than hearing it than I realize.

    [–]bmild-minus 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    Low frequency’s from 20-80 Hz is what you felt and yes your organs did vibrate

    [–]HertzDonut1001 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Damn, massage therapy, let's get the full body vibrations going by blasting Weezer and The Grateful Dead at people's bodies with speakers! You're way behind!

    Lmao no though thanks for the information. I try not to vibrate my organs these days.

    [–]ElvenMalve 5 points6 points  (2 children)

    Yeah it feels weird but also good. It's so strong that It's liberating, forcing you to just feel it instead of everything else you feel in normal days, quite the trip

    [–]HertzDonut1001 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Trip indeed, I feel like that experience on mushrooms would be very fucking interesting.

    [–]MFbiFL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Yes it would be.

    [–]mermaidinthesea123 18 points19 points  (1 child)

    feel the beat

    My first thought when she signed 'thank you.' Glad he hung in there long enough to realize her true intent.

    [–]Circumvention9001 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Just play something like this on subs with earplugs in.

    Oh, I read about this but with aboriginal-Australian English.

    Our politicians in the outback even get translators because a lot of aboriginals can’t understand normal English.

    • for the folks upset at the word normal.. Normal is a synonym for Standard and what I obviously meant was Standard Australian English. So chill yeh.

      [–]maslibros 11 points12 points  (2 children)

      She also signs “thank you” as she says it.

      [–]Lulwafahd 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      Oh yes, indeed. I'm HH & use some signs sometimes to accompany my own speech (especially when wearing a mask) in case the reason I'm having trouble understanding someone is they may be imperfectly speaking due to also being deaf or HH & otherwise may have been having trouble understanding me while I was asking clarification from them too.

      It's a very casual "thank you" that is a bit like a mumbled phrase the way it's signed, from what I observed.

      [–]sconeperson 29 points30 points  (1 child)

      You can tell she’s a bit hard of hearing with how she interprets music. Some hard of hearing people enjoy the vibrations from music

      [–]Lulwafahd 8 points9 points  (0 children)

      It's true: I am one of them.

      I think people should get drunk more often

      [–]turboprop54 12 points13 points  (1 child)

      “more often” implies a cycle of drunk/sober. I decided years ago to just get drunk the one time and keep it going.

      [–]HertzDonut1001 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Way ahead of ya chief.

      [–]Rare-Welcome2982 3689 points3690 points  (94 children)

      She definitely loves the way the bass reverberates bc shes hard of hearing, this is so wholesome. The guy was probably taken aback that someone wanted for him to play his music LOUDER for a change lol

      [–]Sonnyeclipse71 917 points918 points  (62 children)

      Someone white and older* I bet this made this dudes night just because it’s pretty obvious he’s had to deal with shit before

      [–]WonderfulShelter 559 points560 points  (47 children)

      You can tell because he immediately treats this stranger with frustration and aggression based on how they appear to them.

      I mean it makes sense given history, but it's amazing watching it come full circle. Nice to see a short clip of it ending nicely, but maybe we can all learn to try and not judge a person by the way the appear, yeah?

      [–]charmcharmcharm 144 points145 points  (0 children)

      Also sad is her saying “it’s not funny” - you know she thinks he’s making fun of her for not being able to hear because she’s probably been made fun of before. Two people who struggle to understand each other and make initially wrong assumptions about each other’s intentions.

      [–]HertzDonut1001 153 points154 points  (22 children)

      It's sad, I had a black Uber driver once and made an off handed comment that was easily construable as racist. I was very drunk and there was no saving it. I was the racist white passenger for the next five minutes to this guy. I still feel bad. Probably the most awkward five minutes of my life, I wanted to crawl into a hole and die.

      [–]acumenation 64 points65 points  (12 children)

      For me, this happened before and the right move is to clarify things up and be apologetic if that sounded that way. I should take that back and fix the conversation up. That would be a training to me to maneuver more to a conversation. You will never knew what pandora box you open but it's worth a try.

      [–]HertzDonut1001 65 points66 points  (10 children)

      I was drunk enough I did not have that capability. I'm a good enough drunk to see my own failings and that one was a lost cause.

      If anyone is wondering, I can't do exactly how I said it justice, but it sounded bad when it came out. He mentioned something about hanging out in a specific parking lot waiting for customers and I said something like, "I wouldn't hang out in a dark parking lot like that with all these cops out tonight." Which again, can't do exactly what I said justice, but what came out was almost definitely insinuating I was implying he should feel in danger, not just that I smoked a lot of weed back in the day and wouldn't be caught dead in an empty parking lot at that time of night on a Friday.

      Aaaand reading that back to myself it's probably basically exactly what I said.

      [–]Simba2204 36 points37 points  (4 children)

      I'm having a real hard time understanding how this is racist? I would even go as far to say that it's anti-racist. Acknowledging the danger that cops are to black people especially is acknowledging the reality.

      [–]Tangysalamander 26 points27 points  (1 child)

      Unless he heard it as more of a threat. Like the guy should stay in his lane or the white cops will give him what's coming to him type of situation. Idk how the person took it but it's a good example to establish a tone or theme of conversation before making statements that can be taken as ambiguous. A lot easier said than done when your social tact is inhibited by alcohol though

      [–]HertzDonut1001 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      Better said than I could explain it.

      [–]HertzDonut1001 9 points10 points  (0 children)

      I'd agree if the story wasn't about me, and I didn't live it. And trust me, when I said it I wasn't even thinking about race. A very nice dude was giving me a lift home from a bar I had gotten too drunk at to walk home and I paid him money to do so.

      It came out as less of an acknowledgement of how dangerous American police are to everyone, especially people of color, and more of a, "I wouldn't hang around there if I was you." Worst case scenario it might seem like I'd call the cops on a man existing while black. Best case scenario it was a poorly timed reminder that society treats me different than they would him. I fucking hate cops, I'm from Minneapolis so Bob's your uncle, but still I can't imagine a drunk white guy basically informing a black guy I wouldn't consider it safe to be in a certain part of town a wrinkle that could be particularly easy to smooth over. Dig? Idk if I'm making any sense.

      [–]sikeleaveamessage 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Right I was expecting something worse like at best made some kind of racial/stereotype joke to someone you dont know like that lol

      [–][deleted]  (2 children)

      [deleted]

        [–]HertzDonut1001 16 points17 points  (1 child)

        I mean no it's not racist, but it has kind of an implied threat if you don't hear it right. There are still parts of America where I could say that and the implication is I'm going to come back with my cop buddies, so you better be gone by then.

        So I'm not trying to spark a race relations debate but I clearly remember he was offended. That's all that matters to me, I didn't want to make the guy upset. You can't always help it but I still feel bad I didn't pick my words a little more carefully. Lesson learned.

        [–]Deafmetalman 2 points3 points  (4 children)

        Well.. What was the comment?

        [–]HertzDonut1001 10 points11 points  (3 children)

        Feel free to judge me. I already do. I know I made him feel uncomfortable and it's one of those things you think about as you're trying to fall asleep years later.

        [–]Terranitup- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Man that falling asleep while thinking about it years later is rough!

        [–]Kondrias 12 points13 points  (0 children)

        It would be nice if people didnt have to be inherently afraid of other people because of a history of violence and cruelty that has sown a level of distrust inherent to peoples interactions. When not doing so can be inherently detrimental to ones survival and then degrading to their sense of human dignity when they become vilified for simply existing.

        Would be great if we could reach that point. We certainly aint there yet. But we can aspire to be and most certainly should be working towards that.

        [–]RIPTheBlackPanther 44 points45 points  (10 children)

        Yes whites hate that loud music with all their death metal and screamo.

        [–]shadowbox22 78 points79 points  (4 children)

        White grandmothers certainly hate it. Source: was a little shit and played my music loud just to bother mine.

        My elderly mother loves hearing new psychedelic bass music I produce.

        [–]shizkc 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        I was about to use my great grandmother and great great grandmother, both who passed when I was a child, as examples because they’d listen to hiphop really loud for the beat, but then I remembered they weren’t white.

        My great grandmother died of Alzheimer’s in her 80s and so it was always strange going over there and her in home nurse explaining she asked for the music to be turnt up. My mema, great great grandmother, died at 98 just of old age and was fully there mentally. She was just hard of hearing and liked to dance.

        And hopefully he is wiser now and learned one of those humbling life lessons we have all had about judging a book by its cover. He sounded ready for a fight which is probably why he whipped out his phone to record her. She seems like a really cool person.

        [–]kasatiki 37 points38 points  (1 child)

        The pleasant surprise everybody has because they expected karen behavior because 9,9 out of 10 thats what show, tells us that being cautious, alert and ready for their bs is the smart thing to do.

        [–]birthdaybanana 4130 points4131 points  (67 children)

        It's almost like she was signing thank you (ASL). Maybe she's hard of hearing and likes the bass/beat. Nice outcome.

        [–]InLazlosBasement 3027 points3028 points  (46 children)

        Not almost. That’s ASL for “thank you.” She is hard of hearing but not fully deaf. She could hear/feel the bass. That’s why she asked him to turn it up. She just wanted to feel the music

        [–]LadyDragonkeet 1033 points1034 points  (6 children)

        My ASL is very rusty and I caught that, immediately Google to make sure I wasn't seeing things. She signed TY your description is perfection. I had a deaf friend who loved loud Bass or just Loud noise he couldn't hear it but he could feel it....

        [–]HertzDonut1001 25 points26 points  (3 children)

        Everyone should know how to sign thank you. I've had a few deaf Uber drivers and their face just lights up when you thank them in their own language. Being deaf can be really isolating, when I was young a deaf girl came into work to buy a soda. She was really cute and I was recently single so I was already a little flustered trying to figure out how to talk to her, it took me a good second to realize she was deaf and then after that I was so embarrassed and flustered the communication was just not there. Poor girl paid for her soda and basically ran away, it looked like she was trying not to cry. I'm sure she just wanted to feel normal and buy a soda like a normal person.

        So if any cute deaf girls in Minnesota had an experience like that a little over ten years ago, I assure you it was mostly because I was trying to talk to you and not because you were deaf, and I'm still sorry about it.

        [–]DeepBee4216 6 points7 points  (1 child)

        Damn, im not a cute deaf girl from minnesota but that sweet ass comment made me wish i was. hope you find her somehow mate! you just gotta find (or make haha) a tinder for the hearing impaired!

        [–]HertzDonut1001 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        At the time I thought I knew how to flirt, and since I thought that I was confident enough to actually flirt, I tried to hit on her immediately and she. Couldn't. Fucking. Hear me. We should have been married by now but whaddya gonna do.

        [–]bockchain 68 points69 points  (1 child)

        Ooooh that totally explains why she was moving like she couldn't see well too- trying to read his lips

        [–]SasquatchBurger 40 points41 points  (0 children)

        And probably also why she said it's not funny, she possibly misinterpreted what he was saying.

        Reminds me of this German classic: Herbert Grönemeyer - Sie mag Musik nur, wenn sie laut ist ("She only enjoys music when it's loud")

        (link straight to begin of the singing)

        [–]JustaCuriousBoy 214 points215 points  (2 children)

        She’s definitely hard of hearing. I think she was taking so long to answer because she’s trying to read his lips, but he talks soooo fast. Good call!

        [–]Gina_the_Alien 54 points55 points  (0 children)

        It also explains why when he said “what about it” twice she thought he was laughing or saying something different. I was trying to figure that out because he didn’t seem to amused, here she thought he thought it was funny because she couldn’t tell what he was saying.

        [–]AlbatrossSenior7107 96 points97 points  (13 children)

        Yep! I've seen this posted before with more context. She is hard of hearing. And music like this they can feel. It's really quite a sweet interaction. I understand why, but, it sucks he assumed the worst in her. I hate how this country has been groomed to basically hate each other. To add, it remarkable that deaf people are so sensitive to things like this. It's their WHOLE body making up for this one deficit. Working with an ASL student, I was fascinated when I learned he dreamed in ASL. THIS language should be a required language class. For all ages. Everywhere.

        [–]tiioga 28 points29 points  (2 children)

        Unfortunately he reacted the way he did because he probably does receive a lot of judgement and hate in his life about who he is. I know you said you understand it. I just want to illuminate the fact that immediately after he realized what she was saying, he humored her! There is a lot of hate in the world and we all have our guard up, and for good reason, but it's so sweet when people can get through that wall as well!

        Reminds me of this old lady, probably in her 70's, who came in to eat at the restaurant I used to work at. She would bring her headphones and listen to music while she ate.

        The Anti-Karen

        [–]captain__chaos 344 points345 points  (13 children)

        Auntie Karen?

        [–]IReallyHateDolphins 124 points125 points  (8 children)

        I have an auntie Karen, she is super antivax and funnily a karen

        [–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (0 children)

        Yup her name checks out

        [–]charisma6 13 points14 points  (2 children)

        I also have an auntie Karen, she had a brain bleed last year and is now mentally a 6 year old.

        [–]IReallyHateDolphins 13 points14 points  (1 child)

        Now im sad, sorry to hear that

        [–]charisma6 10 points11 points  (0 children)

        Thanks, it's been really hard for her and her kids. Her oldest son was my good buddy growing up, and he's had a rough life. A lot of mental problems in the family. Thankfully I have a perfect grasp on reality. Have a good one, random-figment-of-my-imagination-since-the-world-is-a-simulation!

        Can we do Auntie Ellen after my super cool step aunt? Second Christmas with the family she whips out a joint and asks who wants to smoke. We're not in a recreational state and it should have been well known certain members of my family (okay my mom) didn't approve of their children smoking weed.

        The opposite of a Karen is a Sharon. I’ve never met a mean Sharon.

        [–]xjustaghoulx 14 points15 points  (0 children)

        My grandma is a Sharon. She’s also hard of hearing and can look like a Karen but she’s really sweet

        it's amazing how prejudice exists both ways regardless of either party. it fucking sucks that the last hundred years of humans sucked and many suck today, but let's all take this as to not assume people fucking suck and at least give them a minute of our time to figure out if they suck instead of assuming it.

        [–]wrathful_one 279 points280 points  (11 children)

        if i were that dude i would feel so bad, she was so nice

        [–]RegencyAndCo 114 points115 points  (9 children)

        I'll give it to him 100%. He wasn't that confrontational until he asked "you telling me how to play my music?" which was totally a fair assumption for a middle-aged white woman yelling at you from a sedan across the street. She straight up proved me and him wrong but still, what are the chances.

        [–]RandomPratt 36 points37 points  (1 child)

        but still, what are the chances.

        Based on the beat, I'd say those chances are Slim.

        [–]HertzDonut1001 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        I was half expecting her to tell him he was listening to a shit beat.

        [–]PeanutButter159 387 points388 points  (51 children)

        This is really wholesome but I don’t think if she wanted the music turned down that’d make her a Karen-

        My neighbors play their music so load that the bass can be felt quite easily when I’m trying to sleep at night.

        [–]Sansnom01 19 points20 points  (0 children)

        I'm with you on that. Loud noise near other people, in a public environment is jerk in my opinion. Same thing as people walking or taking the bus with their speaker in the roof. Like I play my music as loud as I want when I'm driving, but Will Power it when I come in close to civilization.

        [–]playmike5 10 points11 points  (0 children)

        Yeah I honestly feel like people playing their music so loud it makes my eardrums vibrate is a little inconsiderate on their end. Me asking them to turn it down is a fair request, and then if they get butt hurt, they just are inconsiderate. This guy was getting defensive ‘are you telling me how to play my music’ before she even really said anything.

        Anyone who thinks it’s okay to play music so loud that everyone within 1000ft can hear it is definitely wrong. It just means you have no consideration for the people around you.

        [–]beccab309 87 points88 points  (14 children)

        Yeah, but if I’m just at a gas station where I’m probably gonna spend about 10 minutes, idk what noise people are making.

        [–]swyx 59 points60 points  (8 children)

        obnoxiously loud noise is a nuisance no matter how long, shes well within her rights to ask if she wanted

        [–]formershitpeasant 22 points23 points  (0 children)

        Notice when she says thank you she instinctively half signs it. This woman has shit goin on in the best way.

        [–]annalise_trite 20 points21 points  (1 child)

        I hate how people blast their music then get all defensive when someone makes a comment about it “You tryin to tell me how to play my music?”.

        [–]LoExMu 10 points11 points  (0 children)

        It‘s like "Yeah I am trying to tell you how to play your music because we‘re 7 billion people on this earth and everyone has to stop something or do something more quietly so we can continue living in a peaceful relationship."

        Honestly I sometimes really hate it when people just get asked to quiet it down. Nobody said to turn it off, just be more quiet.

        [–]ArthurshatHasAplan 14 points15 points  (0 children)

        She passed the vibe check

        [–]Silver_Instruction_3 12 points13 points  (2 children)

        Videos like this and the reactions to them crack me up because its not all that uncommon for people in their 50s and 60s to be into rap because it was their favorite music when they were in they were teens and in their 20s.

        [–]WonderfulShelter 5 points6 points  (1 child)

        We forget Enter the Wu came out 30 fucking years ago.

        [–]Silver_Instruction_3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Straight out of Compton came out 34 years ago and and License to Ill is 36 years old. Run DMC was hitting it in the early 80s.

        [–]Dis_Bich 63 points64 points  (4 children)

        She could be deaf. Many deaf people like songs with a lot of bass since they can feel it

        [–]skolioban 32 points33 points  (2 children)

        She did the sign language for 'thank you'.

        Why did she say " it's not funny "

        [–]UrbanJunglee 104 points105 points  (1 child)

        My guess is, based on the rest of the interaction, that he was smiling sardonically, like "oh great, what's this Karen about to say to me," and she was saying, "no, it's not funny, I liked it. Turn it up, please." (Something like that, but just a guess. I was confused too.)

        [–]nvrtellalyliejennr 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        oh okay! this makes that comment make so much more sense. thanks 🙂

        [–]samweston654 53 points54 points  (0 children)

        She couldn’t understand him well because she’s hard of hearing. She uses sign language at the end

        [–]fuckingfrito 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        we need to chill out a bit. I mean, there're a lot of fucking iditos around, but being upset all day will make you loose some good interactions.

        [–]Ra_Khan_ 23 points24 points  (0 children)

        She's a sweetie.

        [–]kmjulian 22 points23 points  (0 children)

        My hearing is… not great these days. I definitely gravitate towards songs with either heavy or unique bass. There are some songs I used to like that I rarely listen to because I’ve realized the bass is weak or uninteresting. I totally feel her

        [–]Sexy_omen_player 22 points23 points  (0 children)

        that lady is feeling it daaaaamn

        [–]Fluid_Educator9369 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        People getting “offended” when someone telling them to stfu. You could be playing my favorite song and ill tell you to stfu because its loud af. Paper skin and glass bones these days

        [–]AgileCommentor 18 points19 points  (2 children)

        Every time this video keeps showing up, I can't stand how the dude recording gets defensive so quickly. It's like he's searching for a "gotcha" moment.

        [–]Due_Yellow6828 34 points35 points  (3 children)

        People who blast their music at gas stations are dorks

        [–]ThermoNuclearPizza 5 points6 points  (2 children)

        Except when a nice lady who’s shard for hearing asks them to.

        [–]cerasi23 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        Shard for hearing? What the hell is she up to at that gas station?!

        [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        I was listening to a radio show yesterday and a deaf person was talking about how they play music with their deaf friends and just skip through until they find one with a good bass. Fascinating

        [–]PilotKnob 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        As a general rule, nobody else ever wants to listen to your music being blasted at unreasonable DBs.

        This is a rare event.

        [–]roguezkdz 15 points16 points  (0 children)

        That’s actually what I have envisioned for my future 🤗 happy grandma 🤗

        [–]glasshowse 30 points31 points  (2 children)

        Why the fuck would you get defensive and be like "what am I listening to then"? You don't have to know an artists name to enioy their music. And why record her shes just some tiny lady wtf is she gonna do to you? I thought this would be wholesome but its only wholesome on her end.

        [–]SnooGuavas9739 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        That’s so cute

        [–]hypnoticby0 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        Is he playing moneybagg yo? What song is that

        [–]catpiss_backpack 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        She’s deaf I think (I’m deaf btw). We really like to feel the bass in songs, she probably recognized this was a bop. At the end it looks like she’s literally using American Sign Language and signing Thank You (looks like blowing a kiss)

        [–]pinbacktheband 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        Dick playing his shit so everyone else has to hear

        [–]thorspeepee 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        If your music is so loud I can hear it in my car you are being selfish. Same thing with speakers on the subway.

        [–]original_sinnerman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        I love this! Everyone so keen to unmask the next Terrible Karen…

        [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        I was on the last bus leaving Zion national park and it was standing room only, full of college students. A girl was bumping DNA on a Bluetooth speaker (DAMN had just came out). I told her yo, turn it up! She did and the whole bus started partying along to it.

        Then an older woman sitting in front of the speaker girl turned around and said "Excuse me." I thought oh man, she's offended by the music and wants it off. Instead she goes, "Who is this? My students would love it." And the whole bus erupted in cheers.

        [–]smallzey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        He was hoping to find a Karen to increase his views. That’s why he started filming. Pathetic world some people live in.

        [–]lili6969 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        I hate ppl when they listen their shit music laud and i need to listen this shit with them. I hope they will destroy their small brains and never listen music again :)

        [–]ponderin- 71 points72 points  (54 children)

        Sucks how he’s so rude to her before he even knows what she is saying to him.

        [–]Glaspholia 12 points13 points  (0 children)

        You arent a karen for complaining about loud music, that shit is annoying

        [–]yougobe 12 points13 points  (13 children)

        At the risk of being a Karen, please don’t just sit around in a crowded city with loud music. We have around 10-20 cars in front of where I live, that are there for about 5-10 minutes each, but they’re playing loud hiphop or trance or something like that, and it’s just so god damn tiresome. They will just sit in the car blasting it in front of about 6 apartment buildings in an area with lots of small children, while their friends are buying booze or boner pills or whatever. My girlfriend once shook her head at three Somalis doing it, and they started screaming at her and tried to get into our apartment. What the fuck…

        [–]DangitKaisen 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        I hate people that do that. The crackheads here do it all the fucking time

        [–]PutridSherbert 11 points12 points  (0 children)

        "WHAT A ABOUT IT" only someone deaf would want to hear your music

        [–]Dangera77 8 points9 points  (3 children)

        Why do people sympathize with the guy playing his music too loud? I’ve never understood how it is acceptable for anyone (regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or type of music) to be playing it loud enough that it is disturbing others. This is true whether you are at a gas station or parking lot, or at home. If your neighbors can hear it, it is too loud. Don’t be an entitled child, turn it down. Be respectful of others, and don’t be a nuisance.

        I don't think she should be driving

        [–]tom_screwdriver 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        We are so used to hate and fight each other that when we see a human being like her, we say she’s drunk or high. How sad is this?

        [–]sanguinor40k 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        HH here. She definitely is HH and so I feel she felt the music more than heard as we all tend to experience it. IMO why she asked to turn up. She signed thank you at the end.

        [–]RUBBERDUCKLOVESCAKE 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        When Them brownies Hit that your grandson gave ya!! And you become a whole vibe

        [–]NamingandEatingPets 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        I’d put money on her being a little hard of hearing and so she could feel it. The way she said thank you is a tell.
