I just saw a person walking about, large as life, with their coat done up and their earphones in.
Nothing odd thus far, but get this. Wiith the cable of their earphones on the outside of their jacket (blowing about in the wind, mind) and leading into their front jeans pocket.
As we all know, any non-lunatic has their cable inside their jacket (or jumper or tshirt when not wearing a jacket) to avoid it snagging on things. It’s permissible of course to have your cable outside your jacket to a breast pocket on your jacket but any lower and you’re in the realms of the reckless.
If you’re wondering whether I’m right or not then just check the results of this poll below.
- Obviously I don’t want to snag my earphone cable on things so I very sensibly keep my cable inside my clothing.
- I’m the sort of person who climbs a mountain for no good reason, possibly even without safety equipment, and think nothing of leaving my cable free to get snagged on anything I get too close to.
- I don’t have this problem because I switched to Bluetooth earphones but I was always careful with my cable in the past.
- I switched to Bluetooth earphones, at least partly, because I never had the sense to tuck my cable inside my clothing in the first place
