So get my attention first before you start talking to me.

It’s not that I mind people talking to me when I’m public, but I hate when people are talking to me when I have my headphones in, AND I’m looking down at my phone. Try getting my attention first, then proceed to talk to me.

I'm not sure if people that do this listen to their music at such a low volume that they can hear everything, or they're just oblivious.

I even have brightly colored headphones too, so it’s not like they’re hard to miss. But if I’m asking people to lay attention then obviously I’m asking too much.
