Keep Those Nasty Ass Headphones Away From Me

Someone offered to let me hear a song off of their MP3 player, which was cool, but they got cranky when I pulled out my own headphones.

Now first off, this wasn't to show off my headphones or say that their headphones sucked, it was a matter of public health. People are dirty, not a bad thing, just how it is, and those inner-ear headphones (you know, the ones that actually go into your ear) are not clean. It doens't matter how often you bathe, you get crud in your ears and that then goes onto your headphones, and, personally speaking, I don't want that in my ears (I've got my own crap to worry about, thank you very much).

Now, that said, headphones that are big and go over your ears are probably okay to share. I mean they, like anything you touch, will be covered in germs, but at least they haven't been in someone else's ears. I'm not trying to be a huge hypochondriac, but sharing inner-ear headphones is like shring q-tips, it just shouldn't be done.

I apologize to all those who share q-tips, I support your life style, but do not wish to emulate it.

Isn't that why Q-Tips have two sides?

Or am I just coming completely out of left field here?

Perhaps, I guess if you did it that way it would be okay, but wouldn't it just be easier to use one side for each ear and not have to share? Maybe if you're in one of, "those," relationships.
