Woman Calls Cops After Dude Keeps Whistling 'Closing Time'

Is "Closing Time" by American band Semisonic a good song? Or is it actually a lullaby that garbage bags sing to their rubbish offspring every night?

It's the latter. We might never know, but one thing is for sure: whistling the song repeatedly can apparently drive people crazy.

Take the case of a woman in Oregon, who called the cops earlier this month to report a man "obnoxiously" whistling the '90s hit near her driveway.

The woman told the whistler to "shut up" after he repeatedly pushed the sounds of "Closing Time" through his mouth hole, according to a Forest Grove police log sent to The Oregonian.

“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,” police captain Mike Herb told TIME.

The whistling continues

When officers arrived on the scene — yes, they responded to this — the serial whistler was nowhere to be found, according to the magazine.

He was eventually located — and he was still whistling the song.

This isn't even the only weird report that Forest Grove police received that day.

In the same log that contained the whistling complaint, police said a man reported someone tried to steal his lawnmower.

"He found the lawnmower in the middle of the street with a bag of Fritos left on it," the log said.
