I would argue that there is a lot of us out here that are able to function a lot better when we have tunes in our ears. My question is does your job allow you to listen to music while you work? Mines doesn't and its annoying because I have no motivation to do it since it's so boring, and I can even't listen to music to liven things. I need a new job :(


Bolded for emphasis. What you need is a new job - not music for your current one.

I'm a cubicle drone. Trust me, if they didn't allow us to listen to music, audiobooks and the like I'm sure one of us would have snapped and burnt the place down by now. Hmm.. why does that sound so familiar?

if the music is kareoke (no singing no lyrics) it's okay. some music has bad lyrics that others may find offensive.


So you would be ok with some Noise ( the genre) but not if they're lyrics. Dafcuk?

I keep Pandora on all day, just loud enough to provide background noise.

If someone were to complain, unlikely, I would just close the door to my office.

i cn be pretty sadistic so i'm just laughing right now. i think honestly it's good that they don't let you. it's a good habit.

Doctor is about to start heart surgery.

"hang on a moment music really helps keep me calm during operations"
*dying fetus plays*

It would depend on the job, most jobs require interaction with people or doing something that requires some focus, music would make both of those a lot more difficult.

I agree with this. I'm a programmer so I do what the fuck I want. Headphones all day, don't have to deal with people; I love it.

Yes! Lala would love that. In Lala's current workplace earphones are allowed, but nobody wears them so Lala doesn't put them on.

Consider this. At shopping malls, in department stores, in grocery store, light background music is played---just wait when the Christmas season starts. On construction sites workers play their radios----country or latin depending on the workers. in doctor offices or medical clinics music is played. Walgreens plays music. even walmart.

I have nothing against it, as long as the music is not offensive.

Ah, so vague. Define "offensive". People can get offended by EVERTHING!
And background music isn't the same as directly listening to music by yourself.

Depends on the job . . .
I worked in a print shop where we had a couple of guys who were deaf . . .
We weren't allowed to listen to music because, "you wouldn't be able to hear your machine of something broke."
