Don't dish it out if you can't take it

So, I've been really sick for the past week and a half now. And one of my three passive-aggressive roommates (who is Swiss, in case you're wondering) has really outdone himself, from leaving large piles of garbage to rot in the middle of the kitchen to playing incredibly loud, angry, angst-ridden music at all times of the day and night.

So anyway, yesterday when I was trying to sleep, he turned on his angry, angst-filled music on at full blast. After about an hour of having songs where "motherfucker" was every third word blared through my wall, I'd had enough. I compiled an hour-long playlist of the loudest, rowdiest country songs I could think of, cranked up the volume on my computer, and told it to sing its little heart out. And it did, starting with Travis Tritt's "T-R-O-U-B-L-E", going through Alabama, Brooks & Dunn, Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson, and finishing off with a rabble-rousing rendition of the National Anthem of the United States of America.

I think he just about died of culture shock. At any rate, he hasn't played any loud music since.

Just in case he decides to start up again, though, I'm compiling a playlist of loud country songs about Texas...
