A shipping label was placed carefully on the curved glass of a tank full of starving piranhas and smoothed by hand to cling tightly to the convex surface. From there it was picked up, placed in the truck, scanned, processed, re-scanned, put on another truck, then scanned, then another truck, and so on, so that by the time it got to the house next door via parcel delivery man, the piranhas were hungry enough to be desperate but not so drained that they had no energy. And when Bob opened the package the next day from his neighbor, one of the fishes leapt out of the water and bit his finger clean off. And that’s why it’s always a bad idea to file a noise complaint with the homeowner’s association rather than just tolerating the disturbance or at least having the stones to pay a visit in person and respectfully request some neighborly consideration.

    Neighborly consideration, in the first place, would have eliminated the need for the waste of time and expense involved.
