My neighbor’s tone-deaf.
Industrial-strength ear plugs:
Thank goodness for them.

    Maybe if you sent them some earplugs and suggested that they sing whilst wearing them, then they could hear where they’re going wrong?

    My neighbor’s tone-deaf,
    they wear earplugs to sing;
    it’s all in their head.

      The only problem with that theory is that earplugs block out the sound, whether it comes from the outside or the inside. He would probably try to sing louder to overcompensate.

        If anything you’d sing quieter with earplugs in your head, ever tried eating a bowl of crunchy breakfast cereal wearing earplugs or with your ears blocked with water momentarily from having a shower? Beethoven’s 1812 overture comes to mind.

    Weird neighbors can make like excruciating but at least they make good story-telling fodder at work. 🙂

    We all have had crazy neighbors. My old upstairs neighbor would fight with his wife all the time and I would always hear him scream “I’m watching the Yankees!!!” and everyday while his wife was home alone she would vacuum about twenty times a day and turn her music up really loud and play “Hollaback Girl” over and over again. One time they made me really because the lady dropped a glass trifle dish outside on the sidewalk filled with some nasty jello and cake dessert and just left it sitting on the sidewalk. I ended up scooping it up and putting it in a bag and putting it on their doorstep with a note that said “the sidewalk is not your garbage can” Thank god we bought a house and moved out shortly after that.
