NPR reports that a woman in Osaka was sentenced to 20 months in prison for blasting her stereo at her neighbor. I don't know WHY in the world this story would interest me. Probably because I'm listening to my neighbor's TV as I write this. When I got home, I turned on the vacuum directly above his TV. Childish? Yes. Not as childish as taking up clog dancing for the express purpose of annoying him. It's driving me nuts. I'm thinking of writing another note such as this:
"Dear Charles, Would you mind giving me your TV schedule so that I could listen to the same program in stereo and not have to turn up my TV to hear it over yours? Thanks."
(By the way, this actually happened last night with The Biggest Loser.)
"Dear Charles" [Real name used to NOT protect the guilty] "Would you like me to take up clog dancing or vacuum for hours every night?"
Seriously, dude, get a clue!
