I’m doing my own thing – what’s it got to do with you?


Last week, the media jumped on the news that a young women was sent to jail for having noisy sex. There were mixed reviews from readers, many commenting that this was a step too far. However, from those who are constantly under huge stress brought about by excessively noisy neighbours, there is a level of agreement about the sentence imposed.

We all make a certain amount of noise, we are, after all, only human.

But when does doing your own thing loudly become a totally unacceptable and selfish way to behave? When does your uncontrolled volume become somebody else’s business?

The detrimental effect of unwanted noise on quality of life is really underestimated – until it happens to you.

The noise goes on and on; you get irritated, angry, stressed and tolerance goes out of the window.
