I like "quiet" when I'm outdoors and try not to speak any louder than I have to for the people I'm talking to, to hear me. Sometimes I can hear peoples whole conversations that aren't part of my group. There's not much I can do about that, but when someone in my group is a loud talker and I can't take it anymore I have a hard time coming up with a tactful way to let them know about it. I usually tell them that when I'm outdoors I like to keep a "low profile" and prefer to know about the presence of other people or animals before they are aware of mine. Although it seems like a legitimate excuse, and it is part of it, I still feel like i'm insulting them. Does anyone else have a problem with this?
