An Oregon woman called the cops after a man allegedly refused to stop “obnoxiously” whistling “Closing Time” by Semisonic, according to a local police log.
Authorities in Forest Grove said that the woman allegedly told the man to “shut up” when he insisted on whistling the timeless classic (yes, timeless classic) near her driveway on Saturday.
The song includes the lyric “I hope you have found a friend.” And yet, it seems that was not true in this case, according to Captain Mark Herb of the Forest Grove Police Department.
“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,” Herb told Time.
Now, if you’ve made it this far through the article, the song is undoubtedly stuck in your head. You might as well go all in and listen to the whole thing:
