Most of us love listening to music a little bit louder than we should. Whether you’re running on the treadmill and want the volume up to motivate yourself or you’re fighting to get as close to the stage as you can at a concert, there’s something invigorating about loud music. But only when it’s music we want to hear.

One nurse recently shared on Reddit that she was tormented by a nearby college blasting annoying music all day long in their parking lot. So instead of staying silent, she got petty revenge and altered a longstanding tradition. Below, you’ll find the full story, as well as the song and some of the replies from amused readers!

Many of use love to listen to loud music

Being able to listen to music is one of the best parts of being a human. It allows us to embrace whatever emotions we’re feeling, have cathartic experiences, bond with loved ones over music we can both relate to and simply enjoy the experience of hearing new sounds. According to Vox, part of the reason why humans love music so much is because our brains love patterns.

We like being able to predict what’s coming next in a song after hearing the beginning; it can even engage the same reward system in our brains that sex and eating do. But this is also part of the reason why we don’t tend to like listening to musical genres we’re unfamiliar with. If we can’t predict the pattern, we get bored, and it can simply turn into random noise. 

But no matter how much you love listening to music, you’re never going to love every single song, and you’re definitely not going to like any song that’s blasted at you to the point where it starts creating noise pollution. The European Environment Agency notes that noise pollution is a serious issue for both human health and the environment. Being constantly exposed to environmental noise, particularly sounds from traffic, has been found to negatively impact a person’s health and wellbeing.

But noise pollution can take a serious toll on our health and wellbeing

In fact, 20% of residents in Europe are being exposed to long-term noise levels that are harmful to their health, the EEA says. These sounds can cause annoyance, sleep disturbance, negative impacts on our cardiovascular and metabolic systems and even cognitive impairment in youths. Environmental noise is estimated to have contributed to 48,000 new cases of coronary heart disease each year and 12,000 premature deaths.

The EEA also estimates that 22 million people are suffering from “chronic high annoyance,” and 6.5 million individuals suffer from chronic high sleep disturbance. At the same time, over 12,000 children are struggling with reading impairment in school due to the disturbing amount of noise they can hear from airplanes.

While noise pollution is often overlooked as a significant health issue, the World Health Organization actually found that it is the second largest environmental cause of health issues, behind only air pollution. It can have a significant impact on our mental and physical health, and it can do just as much damage to wildlife.

Animals are typically even more sensitive to sound than humans, and noise pollution from cities can cause species to be pushed out of their homes to try to relocate to quieter areas. It can also cause them significant stress and change their migration routes, which often leads to many deaths due to not having safe paths available. 

Sleep deprivation is extremely dangerous

The nurse in this story noted that the noise from the nearby college was contributing to her sleep deprivation, which can also lead to serious health issues as well. We all know we need our beauty sleep to feel our best, but according to Healthline, not getting enough sleep can cause memory issues, trouble thinking and concentrating, mood changes, a weakened immune system, high blood pressure, weight gain, risk of heart disease, poor balance and can cause accidents.

Nurses in particular are at high risk of becoming sleep deprived due to the nature of their job and the hours that they work. Amerisleep reports that a whopping 60% of nurses experience sleep issues, which can lead them to make preventable mistakes while on the job. Their physical exhaustion can also take a toll on their mental health, job satisfaction and cause them to drive impaired after shifts, putting themselves and others on the road at risk. 

The idea that nurses, who work tirelessly every day to take care of patients’ health, don’t have the time or opportunity to care for their own health is incredibly unfair. Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep, especially nurses. We would love to hear your thoughts on this petty revenge in the comments below, pandas.
