I'd love to hear em'!
Back when I was attending DeVry, a roomate had some 10" home speakers and a 3 piece "sound blaster". I wired it and set it on the corner of the living room. We were listening to the radio at conversation level when suddenly bam bam bam! Someone at the door. One of the roomies opened and a downstairs Karen unloaded on him. Poor guy could not get a single word in, which would have been pointless, seeing how irate she was. After she left we kept doing the same but at a lower volume. We are considerate. Then again without fail, banging on the door. But something was different, the banging was slower and more solid. Same roomie looked through the peep hole and froze. He tiptoed cartoonlike towards us and in a panic whisper, "It's the husband!" Me being young, 10 feet tall, and bullet proof said, " Siddown, I got this." I looked through the peephole and almost burst out laughing!
Looking back at me was a mean, angry, full of rage face, probably all the mad dog he could muster. I thought , alright lets get this show on the road. I opened the door slow, as if doing a big reveal. When he saw me, eyes staring straight into him, ready to play pattycake, his demeanor did a 180. 'H-heyy neighbor, could you guys lower it a bit? Oh you got a Playstation, I got one too, I like it." I wanted to laugh so bad, but I didn't. We are polite. Ended up talking and turns out he was a good dude. He said the wife works nights and is a light sleeper so we complied. Peace, not war. Well, the loving wifey, called the cops anyway! Cops arrive, I give them the tour, explain the treaty and that all is right as rain. No tickets. She would still mad dog us any time she saw us.
