Coworker happend to be a DJ who doesn't care about ear health

we used to have a small little radio. soft music just for the background. But he, beng a crazy dj, doens't care and brought this big boom box. He seems to think he's at work for the music and not working. I mean, who cares about music...when what we're there to do is work.

I'm fine with soft niice music . but with this stereo boom box, it's so loud and i have hyperacusis and tinnitus. My ears hurt badly and i couldnt concentrate at all on my job. i kept making mistakes

I don't think the boss cares, because most of the time she's not even there. she goes to meetings and stuff. And no one else cares either, nobody has Hyperacusis except me.

This is a temp assignment and it will end next month so i could just shut up and put up with it...but it's really uncomfortable.

what to do?

Noko, how about getting yourself a pair of ear plugs and wearing them to work? They're fairly inexpensive and most chain drug stores carry them. If anyone at work asks, be honest. The sound hurts your ears and you're doing what you need to do to protect yourself and be productive.
