....and then my neighbours started screaming.

I had no idea what they were screaming about, but I heard it from three apartments over. I could only imagine what it was like for the people next door.

They were having a party over there, I suppose. Or rough sex.

Or a fight.

Or somebody’d broken in, was doing God knows what, and they were begging someone, anyone, for help. And we were ignoring their pleas because in this neighbourhood screaming’s no longer a surprising thing.

I hoped it wasn’t the latter.

I put my earbuds back in, cranked the volume, and returned to what I was doing…

All that is required for evil to triumph is for schmucks to do nothing.

That is so how it is.

In my old apartment, children used to play in an empty lot right under my window. You would hear the most horrible screams, pitiful pleas for help, for mercy, to "Stop! Stop!" even cries of "Someone call the police!" At first I would go to the window to check. After a while I didn't check anymore. There would be no way, absolutely none, to tell if any of those children was actually in need of assistance. All wolf cries.

Reminds me of last week when my inconsiderate neighbours came round, banging on my front door at 3am!! Fortunately for me I was practicing my drum solos at the time- but if that had been the night before they would have really disturbed my sleep routine.

Some people have no sense of civil community!

I can do it quickly, cheaply or properly- but not all three at once.
