Death of Inside Voices

Do you remember, when you were younger, when your mother would tell you to use your “inside” voice?
I mean, it was their subtle way of getting you to stop screaming through the house on the top of your lungs.

Well, there must have been a funeral for inside voices, and I guess I am the only one who didn’t see the death notice in the paper.

There is a certain amount of noise that is expected in an office,and yet, you would think that out side is an office, based on the volumes that are emitted.When you have to actually put an earplug in your ear in with light music coming out in order to drain out background noise and you are actually able to hear what the person on the other end of the phone is hearing, well, all I have to say is it is pretty sad. What is even worse is that I hope I don’t go deaf by the time I am retiring in order to actually do my job.

Just saying.
