If I was in the couple sexing so loud that a man tried to burn down the building, I’d wear that with a badge of honor. In Albuquerque, NM, this exact thing took place.
A 36-year-old man heard his upstair neighbors boning like animals. Instead of knocking on the door, he tried to set things in his apartment on fire so he’d spend a night in prison to escape the sex noises.
From the Albuquerque Journal:
“He stated that he heard people having sex upstairs and making a lot of noise,” the officer wrote in the complaint. “(The man) stated that by starting the fires he could go to ‘prison’ and get away from the noise.”
So the officers took him to the county jail, charging him with arson.
Seriously. If I was part of that couple, I would brag that story to every person I met. I’d call my parents. I’d call my old teachers and tell them they were wrong and I’m not a failure. I’d call everybody. Even the mayor.
