A headset with an attached microphone for network management.

I love this coffee shop down the street from my office. Excellent coffee, comfortable chairs – a quiet place to work. While enjoying my Pumpkin Spice Latte, I opened a new tab in my browser and BOOM – all of a sudden loud, jarring video music started playing. Everyone starting staring at me as I frantically tried to turn the volume down. Awkward to say the least.

Has this ever happened to you?

After I calmed down, I decided to spend a few minutes finding out how to prevent this from happening again. I found this short and sweet article on how to put an end to this awkward explosion of noise! If you love your quiet space but don’t want the embarrassing stares – go ahead and make a small tweak on your computer.

Until next time, have an awesome week
