Dear noisy neighbour

Thank you for your ear-splitting performance last night. I know it’s Pchum Ben holiday, and karaoke parties are a common thing here, but you have chosen a brilliant stage for your act – the entire stretch of our deserted street which is surrounded by many apartment units with windows facing it.

Dear noisy neighbour, While it’s also true that most of the residents in our street left town, those of us who stayed to enjoy the peace and quiet were, instead, tortured by agonizing musical renditions in the middle of the night. What’s more, all the dogs in the neighbourhood decided to join the karaoke party, too.

In particular, your hair-raising solo rendition of the “Happy Birthday” song, brought tears to my eyes.

My verdict? Horrible. Your singing is so dreadful it sounded like a dying cat. It kept me awake all night. Can we, your neighbours, sue you for damaged eardrums at the sangkat, please?
