Man won’t stop whistling ‘Closing Time,’ woman calls cops
A woman in Oregon became enraged enough to contact authorities after a man near her home wouldn’t stop whistling Semisonic’s “Closing Time.”
Time reports the woman told the man to “shut up,” which prompted a verbal altercation to break out.
“It’s not clear if the caller would have been more or less upset if it was a different genre or whether it was just the talent lacking in the whistling,” Grove Police Department Captain Mark Herb said.
When police located the suspect, he was still whistling “Closing Time.” Police sent him on his way, saying in the police log, “he whistled his way back home.”
