Talkin' in the City

Just a quick vent...

We live on the corner pretty close to a school, a bus stop, etc. in Wash DC. Its really a pretty busy street, but its really surprisingly quiet in our place. We hear police sirens and firetrucks quite a bit. None of that is really distracting or annoying though.

What is distracting is high school kids walking home from school, folks walking home from work, and people walking home late at night from wherever they are coming from. Its not that they are annoying because they are talking, but most of the time they are SHOUTING! Lol...

It always cracks us up to hear some folks walking down the street two to five feet from each other and they are literally shouting, not in anger, in normal conversation. Second to public displays of affection this shouting in normal conversation ranks as one of the more annoying things in a city;)

At least you can find a Starbucks on every corner though. Or at least that is how it seems when I spent some time in D.C. a couple of years ago.

Love the Metro though, they did a good job with that.

Is it at all distracting when people whistle at you as you walk along the street?

One time, I thought that some annoying guys were whistling at me - and then I realized they were whistling at my husband!
