    That person, you know the one I am talking about.
    The one that at a family and or friends gathering , suddenly whips out his/her cellphone and begins to listen to music that no one wants to hear, nobody’s cares about, on cheap crappy cellphone speakers.
    Are you?

    I have been known at family gatherings to disappear out the back for a cigarette and to listen to a music video of whatever I fancy at the time while I puff away so Yes, I suppose I could be considered "that guy" although I have to use someone elses phone because I disable the internet on my own phone and it's usually left in the car on the weekends.

    I gave up sharing my music with others years ago. Its rare to find people that can shut up and listen to a song for more than a minute or so, they usually burst into speech around the time a cool solo kicks in or that epic phrase you love.

    No, I'm the guy that makes a last-minute excuse not to attend a gathering, so I can stay home and play MY music or guitar loudly, while not bothering them with it.

    Not even close.

    I have a hard time being around someone that can't go 5 minutes without looking at their phone.

    And then there is the person that can't relate an experience without whipping out their phone and taking several minuets to find a poor quality picture to show off.

    Anybody who listens to music in a public place without headphones and without the consent of all within hearing range is a complete @$$#()!€

    I have a friend who's on a mission to make me love John Mayer. Every time I go near him, he finds a way to corner me and make me watch some video he's super passionate about. I have expressed my lukewarm tolerance of John Mayer, and he takes it as full-on permission to inundate me with syrupy neck-pickup Strat love songs that all sound the same. I should just throw my panties at him and be done with it.

    I have another friend who LIKES bro-country music, and has to show me the latest video about tailgate parties, mullets and patriotism. And we're from Quebec...not even American. His colours don't run.

    I just find I don't like people. Me, my guitar and my dog. That'll do me.

    More people should share their favourite music. Most just text others or check their social media accounts to see what new outfit, selfie or dilemma their zombie friends have updated on.

    That would be my neice.

    At every family gathering she proudly forces her music on everyone else. Unfortunately there isn’t much (any?) overlap between her musical tastes and my own.

    What if you are jamming a CDC researcher who happens to be the only one with the knowledge to thwart a weaponized ebola attack potentially taking out a third of the population of my city, but she/he never gets the call? I would SO unfriend you on FB!

    Me and Chunkocaster follow the same procedure it seems...

    Most of the time I just want to avoid the gathering to begin with.

    I find I have very little in common with most people, that's why I like it here. At least we all have 1 thing in common, we like guitar.

    The rest of the time I'm counting the minutes until I can return to the solitude of my room, to be with my guitars or models.... and my dogs and wife.

    But with my INTJ personality type it's to be expected.
