So uh... just wanted to check in with ponyville... wearing headphones when you watch something on TV is a pretty standard rule of being a roommate with someone, isn't it?
I have a roommate who is in the living room her entire waking time, simultaneously watching TV/YouTube/Whatever, while doing stuff on her computer, and refuses to wear headphones because her ears are apparently in almost-constant pain or will be immediately upon putting on headphones.
99% of the time, no one else is watching with her.
Anyhoof, it is stressing me out so much that has become a significant factor in my decision to take an extra-long visit away (to visit parents) from my bf who also lives with her (am polyamorous.)
It is even listed as a rule in this random internet article I found: https://thoughtcatalog.com/nancy-yan/2014/07/10-unspoken-rules-of-having-a-roommate/
so it must be true ~
Anyhoof, share your thoughts/questions/opinions below ~
tldr; Should your roommates wear headphones, or should everyone watch whatever they want on their devices whenever they want as loud as they want?
