Saturday night, 4.30am… you suddenly wake up from shouting and banging metal on metal just outside your window, things being thrown onto a pavement. Even though you are on 12th floor, you can year it as loud as if you were on the ground floor with your windows wide open. You turn around hoping it will die out in a few minutes, but nothing changes, you try ear plugs, still loud as hell, it’s actually getting worse, now the person is kicking at the door of the residential building next door, shouting, swearing…

You think, no f..king way, it’s 4.30am, WTF?!?!

You open the blinds and open the steamed up window to see what is going on… It’s just a guy having a “primitive conversation” with someone in the building as you can clearly hear the responses… so what do you do?

You listen to the “conversation” for a few minutes hoping it will stop, but from the use of language and behavior of the guy, you can clearly see this won’t stop as the guy keeps repeating himself over and over again and is getting louder…

“Come down here!!! I am right here you c**t! Come down f**king here and open the door and sort this out like man! I am right f**king here!” etc etc etc…

Dial the emergency 111, ask for the police, explain what’s going on, wait 2 mins for the first cop car to arrive… and the guy going completely quiet and start talking to the police. You close the window, close the blinds thinking maybe calling the cops was all unnecessary, but on the other hand this would have gone for the rest of the night…

Can you imagine the same situation, but guys being on helium balloons, and shouting something along the lines…?

“My friend, please come downstairs for a fabulously civilized conversation we could have right now, so I could show you in person my amazing persuasion skills. I know it’s 4.30am and it doesn’t feel like a good time to talk, but believe it or not, we will never get a better chance like this to have a heart to heart.”
