George volunteers to play the piano for us every Tuesday, two hours or more. We appreciate it. He gets a tiny honorarium, but it is less than minimum wage, so essentially he is volunteering.
In the old folks home, the piano room adjoins the television room. Sometimes, residents who dont enjoy George sit and listen to the televison while George is playing, and the sound carries to the piano room. George says he doesn't mind, but I sure do. The televsion interferes with the music and their playing it is RUDE to our guest.
Today while he was playing I heard the televsion going, but it was not even a resident. It was some KID. That really frosted my ah, resentment. When the kid stepped out for a minute, I turned off the TV, and STOLE THE REMOTE.
George played in peace. What happened when the kid returned, I do not know, but I kept the remote hidden until George was through.
I can no longer boast that I never stole anything, but, well, it was worth it.
