When you practice a musical instrument, remember: you’re not just practicing for yourself. You’re practicing for the entire neighborhood, So hopefully you’re good, or you could wind up like this.
A woman named Tsige-Jahna Simmons in Kent, England plays the violin, but apparently she doesn’t play it very well. Her neighbors finally called the cops in February because they said it sounded like “a cat being strangled.”
The cops came, and they could hear her horrible violin playing more than 200 feet away. So she got a noise violation and they told her to keep it down. But she didn’t listen. She kept playing,. the courts just got involved, and they confiscated her violin.
She also owes some fines, and if she doesn’t pay them in the next six months, they’re going to destroy her violin.
