      Blasts country music, boyz to men, Schitty dub step and I've heard him play icp. Not to mention back street boys and maria carry.


      I've played all the death metal I can think of. Satanic music, rap pretty much every offensive music I can think of. If I complain we get our music privileges taken away. I've asked him to turn it down numerous times. Everyone in the shop hates his music.

      What would you do to piss this guy off? I need to make him realize that his music sucks and he needs to turn it down or turn it off.

      I'm thinking of putting knife or banana on repeat for 12 hours straight. What would you guys do?

      Walk up to him and tell him his choice of music sucks and nobody wants to hear it.

      Of course it's company policy never to, imply ownership in the event of a dildo... always use the indefinite article a dildo, never your dildo.

      You are going to need bigger speakers.

      This reminds me of when I worked as a small engine mechanic with two other guys the funniest thing happened.

      I was 21, the other two mechanics were 38 (Craig) and ~55 (Glen).

      Glen listened to oldies which sucked but we just dealt with it as he'd been there the longest (seniority) on this old one speaker radio with a handle at the top that just hung on the wall loosely.

      One day Craig had a really ****ty time with a snowmobile being a bitch. Everything was going wrong with this thing. Well on the radio was McCartney's "here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo" and Craig just walked over to the radio, ripped it off the wall, slammed it on the floor and stomped the **** out of it.

      He looked at Glen (who was staring in disbelief/shock) and said very calmly; "I'm sorry, i'll bring you a new radio tomorrow" and then just turned back to his work.

      Everyone in the shop should get together, talk to boss and see if you can get him fired.
      That's only fair thing you can do to someone that doesn't like same things you do.

      We can wear headphones but only in one ear. And I've done both ears and can still hear his music. I can stand at the other side of the hop and still hear his music. Like now hes listening to country. I'm gonna office space his boom box really soon if he keeps it up

      I LOVE those three bands but I am very much in the minority. Most people call it "noise". You can do a lot of damage with this music.

      Opera. Italian & German. You may actually like it, and at high enough volume it will drown the **** out of his music.

      At the other extreme... someone on here mentioned a long time ago having an 80-minute unbroken mix of Haddaway's "What Is Love". If you could get that... Put it on auto-repeat, and report back with the results.

      Play the same song he just played, after it's over. Do this for every song.

      I've been playing a lot of jazz and Mozart but it doesn't phase this kid! Gorgoroth, darkthrone and dying fetus doesn't do anything and that's pure death metal noise!

      If he does that he has to dress like this.

      It's annoying as hell, I go through this once a Month when the douche next to Me Remembers he has speakers.

      His speakers are computer speakers, I work a later shift than him (by an hour) and I waited til he Left and he didn't close his hutch so I took the back Of the main speaker apart cut the speaker wires inside and left the power wires Alone so the speaker led lights up like there is power but no sound.

      But honestly why go through that and just bring it to the service manager? I would of done that but my service manager is the douchebags buddy.

      So you are trying to fight this with JUST music? Is this your first time at the rodeo? How erratic can you act? Do you know how to use Visine to your advantage. Can you work in just bib overalls? How often do you bathe? Do you know what to do with doe urine? Are you afraid to cut the head off of a 3 day dead deer along the road? Do you know where to buy head lice?

      This is not a fight that can be won by music alone. Personally, I would start with Come on Eileen on repeat whilst wearing only (and I do mean only) overalls. Can you dance a jig? Don't discount Good Bye Horses either.

      Off the top of my head:
      - Ask him out in front of your co-workers and keep glancing over at him (could backfire maybe)
      - Talk to him about your "man" problems and ask his advice
      - Blast "It's a small world"

      Or you can do something constructive like talk to your boss about it. If he doesn't allow you to listen to music anymore then at least you won't be listening to his. Or you guys could work out a round robin system where you take turns blasting whatever you want.
