In praise of quietness

I think one of the issues is that socialness is associated with noise. So there's no concept of soci(able)ness without a high noise level. Particularly in terms of pub culture, I'm constantly amazed at the music I have to yell over. After all, if I wanted to be deafened I'd go to a club where music is designed to give that 'oomph' that conduces to energetic dance. but at the same time, I'd like to be in a social space shared not only with people I know, but with people I don't know. It's a shame these things generally, in practice at least, work out to be contradictory...

I hate how loud music is in restaurants and bars. I still have yet to meet someone who enjoys having music so loud in a place of recreation such as these that they have to yell just to be heard and strain just to hear others. Nobody likes it. Why do managers do it?
