What happens when somebody’s socializing encroaches on your personal experience.  In the case of people smoking on the stoop, it is a positive experience for the smokers but probably not for the person on their way to or from class (that is me in the doorway).  I used to walk down the Ave in Seattle near UW on my way home from studio and be fine.  Then, it became illegal to smoke in bars so smokers took over the sidewalk and I was left no choice but to pass through them.  These situations are interesting to me.  What other situations are there when someone’s experience is forced on you?  What is the difference between listening to music on headphones creating an anti-social situation vs. playing music loudly and publicly, creating a situation where people have to engage in your situation.  Where is the balance of choice?
