Morning Lacey, yes this bothers me. My ears are so sensitive, it is either too loud or I can't hear you!! Loud noises really bother me.

do they have hearing problems? Sometimes people with hearing problems talk very loud or not loud enough.

DH shouts in the phone when talking to someone. I have to tell him to tone it down a bit. The poor persons ear drums.

I come from an Italian family, where everyone spoke at once and was extremely loud! If one didn't "speak up", you were never heard. I admit, I am "loud" as well, and often catch myself in the act.

Yep, sensitive ears here too. LOL I probably notice it more with my teens than anyone....or my daughter when she's getting on to her little guy. I can't stand it....hate yelling and sometimes that's what the kids do (especially the boys) when they're "just telling" the other one something.

As for hard of hearing folks speaking loud, I guess that doesn't bother me much, although it does make it difficult to be discreet and/or private in a public setting. My mother wasn't much of a loud person, but my father was a "New Yorker"....and had a tendency to be "boisterous". I don't know if that's common in most NY folks, but it certainly was in his family. LOL

I've been told to tone it down some ....I'm Italian and born in the Bronx so maybe that is why I'm alittle loud to some folks.LOL!!

I'm soft spoken and not boisterous - really don't care for how amped up everything gets when people talk over each other and compete for air space instead of having "normal" conversations.

One of my sisters and one friend in particular are really loud talkers - I even can be across the room and hear what they're saying on the other side of the phone.
