The story has the feel of a blog and as such gives the impression that it's a quick note to self,about nothing much in particular - in this case an annoying song on the radio.

It's a refreshing way to put the topic across but if it were my story I would have injected some friction along the way. Some consequence of the hatred rather than just changing the tune, but that may just be me.

I can tell immediately this is a 'real' person... read

I would try and level out the audio on the jump-cuts; but those are very creative and fit well in the story. I would watch for inconsistencies in the continuity - I saw some disappearing booze bottles in the background. I love the bottle turning upside down in the final line and... read
