If you own a cafe, or a bar, or a bookshop, can I ask you one favour?
Turn the music off.
I’m out of the house today and looking for a place to work for an hour. But every single place I go to has music pumping out. It’s distracting, it’s annoying and it’s not necessary.

This sounds like a rant. It is. It’s impossible to find a moment a peace, and if you are a writer, or a reader, or want to talk to your companion, or just someone who values silence it’s impossible to find a place to be.
