Complaining [about loud noise] really does work if we are

When I faced a similar problem [loud DJ at a school dance], I made
some actual measurements. You can buy an inexpensive sound meter for
as little as $40. I'm sure that a $40 meter isn't as accurate as a
true laboratory instrument, but administrators and managers are more
likely to actually do something if you offer hard numbers in writing ---
such as "79 db on the A-scale in 1/5-second samples when standing in
front of your display counter" --- as opposed to saying only that "my
ears hurt while I was in your store."
