I, too, (not to be outdone) came across a wimp-type who declared an = interest in organ music. Suffering fools is something we do (by way of repenting sins in previous incarnations) ... so I suffered, for a time. Then started the telephone calls, getting later and later at night. By the time they were coming in the wee small hours, enough was MORE than enough.   'Sauce for the Goose being equally acceptable for other (fair) game' I started following HIM, finding out where (as you would for any game you = are tracking) his favourite watering hole was.   And, inviting the rest of the Judo-club (I was competing at 'Super-heavyweight' at the time) to "Come round and have a drink on me", = we were all firmly ensconced before his arrival. It didn't take much to bring the conversation round (in the loudest of voices) to how detestable late night callers were, and how tetchie you = could get when one's sleep was disturbed. 'Everyone' in the pub voiced the same desire to lay hands on people who had annoyed them in the past, and what ought to be the fate of anyone who tried the same thing in the future.   At which, we all drank-up, and left. Very satisfying; a nice affable drink with one's friends, and the ability = to voice one's opinions in a bar.   Young whimp ? Never heard of again. I just hope it wasn't because one of my friends went back when I wasn't looking !   ("The heck, I do !" .........
