Another euro incident. On a suburban train going to Cologne, someone had
their MP3 player blasting away to the annoyance of others in the carriage.
One of us asked the fellow to turn it down which he promptly did, probably
due to all the stares he was getting. I wonder if one would get a similar
ease of compliance here in Aus. Or would you risk a flood of verbal abuse
and possible violence, esp. late at night.
