What Old Man Lou Hates About Candlewood Lake
We were out on the lake with friends yesterday, and the most annoying thing happened. A boat pulled up right next to us, anchored, and started blasting terrible music.
You know, that techno crap. On top of having to endure the music itself, we had to listen to the generator that powered the enormous speakers. I realize that it was young people doing young people things, and that I was obnoxious at that age. I also can tell you that when I did something similar to this, someone came and shut it down.
That's exactly what we need. There needs to be a noise ordinance on the lake.
There, I said it. I am that guy. I am the old man yelling at kids to get off his lawn, and you know what? I am fine with that. The last thing I need is to have my day ruined by a bunch of steroid-fueled nipple heads playing what they think is music, as loud as they can play it.
The fact is, when people do that, they have decided that the lake belongs to them and it does not. We all share it, and I don't want to be forced to listen to what they have decided they want to listen to for the day. So, we either get a noise ordinance or I will fight fire with fire. The next time I encounter that, I am getting my own generator, and hitting the lake blasting Huey Lewis and the News as loud as I can.
